Campus Strictness: Jackson's police are not really noticeable but if you doing babe they will kitchen..

2 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I feel JSU is strict about the wrong things and they're always trying to ruin the fun. The strictness affects the "HBCU Experience" as I would say. Campus security sometimes turn their backs to certain things such as drinking and smoking, but when a visitor parks just for a few moments the security is quick to give them a ticket. As far as academics go, some professors are strict about promptness and some aren't. There are some teachers who are even late to class on a consistent basis. Theses are just a few reasons why i feel the strictness here is slightly below average.

Campus Strictness: Some strictness can be a little too much. The only problem I had with strictness was with visitation. The building manager over the dorm I stayed in would do anything in her power to stop visitation.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

The college atmosphere provides a growing experience for each student to acknowledge that he or she is an adult. Students tend to find holes where they may be able to break a few rules, but there are consequences if caught. Jackson State is not at its full potential of strictness because of the open campus title.

A majority of the campus strictness comes from visitation. Visitation takes place in every dormitory, and each dormitory has its own rules and regulations. Each student is required to attend a workshop to be informed about and what their visitation rights are and how not to lose them. Students can lose their visitation rights if any rule is broken.
