4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Athletics are a beast at JSU! Especially football! Homecoming is always a great turnout! Students are very supportive of our athletes. School spirit is almost second nature when it comes to JSU sports! Undergraduate students and alumni alike support!

College Freshman

Athletics: I do not keep up with any type of sports at school.

4 College Junior

Athletics: Mainly intramural sports are focused on Greek life. Most fraternities and sororities are the groups that play.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Sports at Jackson State overpower any other organization on campus. Each sport receives tremendous support from the community, students, faculty, and staff. Alumni and other fans cheer the team to victory, but whether win or lose, they stand behind the Mighty Tigers.

Every student has an equal chance to join an intramural sport of their choice. Many students who did not reach the varsity level in high school have the chance to join a team and compete against other teams to earn their title.
