3 College Senior

Health & Safety: So far, there has not been any issue concerning sexual assault. Unless, people do not report sexual assault. The campus security are very lazy.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: We have pretty good security, especially at night. Didn't hear about any sexual assaults since I've been there.

3 College Junior

Health & Safety: No where is just totally safe

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Jackson State is very secure they spend lots of money on police officers and training I feel very safe no matter what time of babies

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Theft and robbery is one thing that campus security need to improve. It is often displayed on the local news of robbery of foreign students, and that's not ok. This is preventing foreign students from wanting to attend Jackson State University.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

In past years, the crime rate has been above normal for a southern city, but it has improved since then. Jackson State provides a safe environment to the best of its ability, which allows each student to feel safe as if they were in the comfort of their own home. With the new policies and police officers, a lot of unnecessary crimes are being prevented. Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. It is important that you not walk alone at night, and keep a friend or family member aware of your locations.

 To enter into the dorms, student is required to have their student ID and a key to enter their personal rooms. Student IDs will only work for their assigned dorms. Loaning out your room key is not recommended for your safety, your roommate's safety, and the security of your personal belongings. Common sense is important when it comes to safety at JSU.
