Parking: you can usually find a spot without an issue, however, driving around campus looking for a spot is ridiculous. pot holes and speed bumps everywhere. not to mention the fact that people will randomly walk out in front of you and will just randomly stop in the middle of the street in cars.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: so here's the rundown on this... for all the money that goes into that school the average that they spend on students is about 9k. think about that when you write that check parents. the moral in the faculty is low and the buildings are falling apart on the inside but boy will they spend a couple of grand on a lunch for the admin of the school.

Campus Strictness: well if you are looking for no structure, or a lot of "turn your head and pretend it isn't happening" this is your place

When you come to JCSU, you'll get the experience of your life. Johnson C. Smith is a type of university where the events and opportunities are open to you; you just have to be the person who goes after what you want. Where do you see yourself in two, three, or four years down the line? And wherever you see yourself, are you going to be confident in your own knowledge that you can do the job and do it well? JCSU doesn’t coddle you like a baby or treat you less than the adult that you’re growing up to be. The faculty, staff, and students want to push you past your comfort zone and propel you into an area of extreme success. After all, making sure students leave with not only a degree, but also with life experience is more of the center of focus. You can have a degree and still not know how to use it effectively.

Going to classes and then back to your dorm room sounds pretty boring to you, right? Well, enjoy the heart-pumping and mind-numbing awesomeness at Smith. The step competitions, cultural enrichment programs, gym parties, CIAA tournament, poetry slams, DJ beat battles, pageants, intramural sports, football games, and much, much more are at your disposal.
