Lower, middle, and upper class students all exist at JSU. When thinking of a Historically Black College or University (HBCU), you imagine all African American students, but this is not the case. JSU students come near and far to experience the HBCU life. It does not matter whether a student is African American, Caucasian, or Asian, this university has them all. Professors are also diverse in the science departments and foreign languages.
People come to JSU to receive an education with no worries about fitting in after weeks spent on campus. The atmosphere has a comfortable spirit that gives each student a feeling of home. It provides insight on difference and prepares you for the outside world. Homosexual and bisexual students exist proudly and are accepted by the student body. Each student will experience diversity and learn a lot about the world both in class or outside.
