Nightlife: If you have transportation, then it's great. If you don't, then you have to make friends fast.

Nightlife: My school is wanted abyss HBCUs to attend. It is reaching history and very diverse. Even though we have a few students we are students everyday. The professors really care about you and make sure you past and know the material so that you can have a successful career.

Nightlife: Parties are epic! The Greeks throw awesome parties especially the Delta Delta chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity Inc. The Regency and Mansion are great venues for college parties! The Palisades are close to campus and are also fun but those tend to get shut down by security and management quicker. Party buses are provided so that students can get to parties!

Nightlife: I did not go to many college parties. I go to local clubs.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

JSU is not a party school per se, but students know how to have fun. Different organizations host parties and social gatherings after hours to give the students something to do after all homework has been put aside. Many students who are strictly academics still find the time to go out and have a little fun. The campus offers a bowling station for those who do not want to go out. Freshmen tend to create things to do until they are of age.

Thursday is College Night, and this is the day that many students get dressed up and go out looking for love. Thursdays have become the best day out of the week. Many students arrange their class schedule to avoid having early morning Friday classes, or no classes at all on Friday. Friday and Saturday nights are usually the casual go out to eat or shopping nights. Many students hang around, or explore the rest of the state.
