4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The class sizes can be adjusted but overall the professors are great. They take their time and try to help you. When they are in the classroom they are all about work. There are some that are unprofessional but we know how to deal with it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: We have an office you can go to where they help you look for jobs after or while you're in college. Jobs are provided on campus only if you want to work here.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Sexual assault is a big thing on campus. We have had a few cases happened but it's not bad is year. I do not feel safe walking alone around campus, only because our campus police won't be able to help. The campus police drive on the plaza and walk around campus but that's only 5 out of over 30. There are officers that fall asleep and not do anything.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living on campus is absolutely the best. You are actually getting the chance to be around everyone and you're not that far from the plaza so you won't miss anything going on. As of living off campus, it's ok but it's nothing like living on campus. You miss the fun when you're off campus and having to get up and drive to class is a hassle because it's hard finding parking spots.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: The sororities and fraternities on my campus always have something positive going on for the community. Sometimes they have a barbecue for all the students and incoming freshman to meet each other and get to know everyone. We recently had a school supply drive that the Alpha Kappa Alpha sorority put together for the high school and elementary kids.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: The athletes at Jackson State have support from not only everyone on campus but the whole Jackson community. We love out team players because they are the best and they are really good at what they do. Every game whether it's football, basketball or baseball the stands and bleachers are always filled, sometimes even overfilled.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: People always try determine where they want to go to school after graduating college. Fact of the matter is, its not about where you go but what do you plan to accomplished and or gain from while attending.

2 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are campus police visible majority during the day, but at night they are hard to find. I don't think it's safe to walk alone at night because there have been many incidents reported related to rape and robbery.

Campus Housing: Living on campus is very convenient, especially for first year students. The dorms are okay but they could use a lot of work. Campbell North/South have the best quality. The housing process is very hectic. If you do not apply around the first couple of days that the housing applications open then you are likely to be stuck somewhere you do not want to be or without a place to stay.

Greek Life: The Greeks are an important aspect to the campus life. Greeks give non-Greeks something to look forward to join and be a part of. I don't believe Greek housing is available at all.

Campus Housing: Its great depending on the building. I believe that on campus housing is great if you can afford it.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There are alot of greek organizations who aren't represented here due to national constraints. However, another downside is that you can old cross in the spring and not in the fall which sucks for people like me graduating in the fall.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: For a school that has been to SWAC Championships at all levels it is a good school for Athletics.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I believe Jackson State is a good school. Although funding is scarce for those from out of state. However. I also believe that the course are worth it and their CSET college is awesome.

3 College Senior

Health & Safety: I feel safe but it could be better.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: It is great. Every fraternity and sorority are very active in school.

4 College Senior

Athletics: Jackson State is the best when it comes to supporting the football team and other sports.

Jackson is the home of many, and the future home of many to come. Prospective students always want to know: Why choose JSU? Choosing Jackson State is one of the best choices a student can make in his or her life. Many people are quick to judge this University because of its HBCU title. Once you're here, though, you receive a reward that will be remembered. Every school has it down sides, some more than others, but this does not characterize the University's ability and what it can do for you.

Students at JSU strive to raise the standards and live above the stereotype set out for JSU. They show love for their school through sports, academics, and community service. Attending JSU teaches you to respect others and use common sense. If you did not know who you were before entering, you will know upon graduation.

The professors are very encouraging, and they care about their students. The knowledge they instill in one is different but comprehension. Many professors have personal relationships with their students, and it makes the college ride a smooth sailor. You will meet people from all over and establish a long lasting relationship. This is the best part about attending Jackson State.
