Health & Safety: The safety and security concerns are walking and if you I help the security want come. I think that sometimes when things are going on and seem bad, they run until it is over or until someone is hurt and act like they been there the whole time. Also, I feel that sometimes they are so busy on the phones are sitting I their butts that they can not help no one because they are not paying attention.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation at my school is the best. I mean if students need to go off campus to the stores or to the doctor there is a bus to take them there at no cost. Also, there is a bus to give them transportation for off campus classes for free. I really do not know about the ling distance transportation because I have a car as my friends do as we'll.

Athletics: The fan support at the games are outstanding from both the community and the students. In football, the team plays exceptionally well together. The boys basketball team does the same as the football team; however, the girls basketball team plays good together but looks for competition amongst themselves instead of the other teams. The tee shirts to show the support are very creative and nice and the dj is the best.

Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

Jackson is the home of many, and the future home of many to come. Prospective students always want to know: Why choose JSU? Choosing Jackson State is one of the best choices a student can make in his or her life. Many people are quick to judge this University because of its HBCU title. Once you're here, though, you receive a reward that will be remembered. Every school has it down sides, some more than others, but this does not characterize the University's ability and what it can do for you.

Students at JSU strive to raise the standards and live above the stereotype set out for JSU. They show love for their school through sports, academics, and community service. Attending JSU teaches you to respect others and use common sense. If you did not know who you were before entering, you will know upon graduation.

The professors are very encouraging, and they care about their students. The knowledge they instill in one is different but comprehension. Many professors have personal relationships with their students, and it makes the college ride a smooth sailor. You will meet people from all over and establish a long lasting relationship. This is the best part about attending Jackson State.
