5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I can't wait to be asked to pledge, its been a childhood dream. I'm so excited but the cost is what i'm more concerned about.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The hidden fees and cost just wreck my nerves, and they should let students know up front.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: So far, my experience at school has been good but could be better as a transfer student. A majority of the administration is lazy, nonchalant and behaves as if you're wasting their time. When reaching out to certain teachers, they can take weeks to reply if not at all. Or they'll give you the round around to come to their office, only to discover theyre no where to be found. On a positive note, many of the teachers are very accomplished and knowledgeable in their fields. School pride is awesome as it shown all across campus and even around the community. Its awesome that JSU is one of the only universities with their own campus Apple Store. Based on my experiences, I would choose my school again.

Athletics: Athletics are a major part of Jackson State, especially football. Not only because of the excitement of going against our HBCU rivals but because of the marching band, the Sonic Boom putting on a great show. The stands are always filled to the max, and everyone wears blue and white and/or paints their faces like tigers. Long lines wrap around the stadium for jumbo snow cones and other unhealthy delicious snacks. It's also fun to see alumni and everyone repping their sorority/fraternity, new and old school.

Health & Safety: Jackson State is in the heart of the city. Things aren't dangerous on campus. Just stay mindful of where you are.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The professors seem to only be on their own time which is troubling when office hours are necessary to us as students.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The value of a degree is strongly emphasized being that it's an HBCU but it seems as though the instructors only say it rather than helping to see it through.

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.
