Campus Housing: Its okay living on campus at Jacksonville State University. The dorms are like an apartment complexes. The social atmosphere is filled with fun and positive people. The cost is outrageous but if your rich its not a bad option.

Weather: JSU tends to not cancel school during bad weather. This year, we had a terrible snow storm, and JSU did not cancel classes until I was already stuck on campus. I was stranded for 4 hours in a parking lot until I was able to flag someone down to help me. After this incident, JSU now cancels classes at any chance of heavy snow, which is how it should be.

Nightlife: I do not participate in parties, but I have heard many other students talk about them. Underage drinking appears to be a huge problem at JSU.

Academics: The Teacher Education Program at JSU is wonderful. The staff is professional, and they expect the best from their students. It can be unorganized at times, but most schools will be from time to time. I have enjoyed my time in Ramona Wood Building.

Off-Campus Dining: There are not any healthy choices. Jacksonville only offers the same few places, and I get tired of them easily. There are many fast food options, but, again, it is not healthy to eat fried foods every day. There are a few local places that are good, but students grow tired of those easily, too.

Off-Campus Housing: The Reserve is a beautiful place to live; however, the prices are very high. The parking availability was average at The Reserve, but there is a Dollar General within walking distance; having the store close by is an advantage. Also, I have heard from many JSU friends that the parking at Colonial apartments is terrible. Some of my friends have not been able to find a parking spot, and they are paying to live there!

College Freshman

Parking: Parking is crazy!!! Get there fast and have a parking ticket or you will get a ticket!

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The school is surrounded by fast food resturants

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Please apply for Scholarship, you need free money! College is expensive. You get financial aid but sometimes you still have to pay more, especially freshmen year. It's the most expensive year

4 College Freshman

Computers: You will find a open computer anywhere.

5 College Freshman

Majors: We are all about grades. Great programs and majors. Perfect law and business progam

3 College Freshman

Majors: never had one but you just get trained on the things you need to do and do it. Its very simple

The first time you wander around campus at Jacksonville State University and feel the sun shining through the trees, you will begin to understand what it means to be a JSU Gamecock. It is a mix of old Southern charm and a wide new world of possibilities. It is a new world of wearing the game day crimson and cheering with your fellow students in the student section at football games and feeling the stadium vibrate with the sound of The Marching Southeners. It is walking through the Quad and staring up at the stone buildings and realizing that this place is more than bricks and stone. It is making friends that last and maybe even finding love.

It is about realizing who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there. It is a journey, not a destination. It is sitting down on the grass with a textbook for the first time in your life and studying, not to please someone else, but because you have realized that you want greatness, you want to be the best you can be for you. Your professors are interested in you. They won't pass you unless you deserve it, but they are there to help you succeed. For the faculty and staff, from the president to cashiers and custodians, friendliness is a mainstay. They always have a smile for students. You will be accepted for you. This place has deep roots and a wide open sky, tradition and possibilities. You write your story, and JSU is a great place to start.
