Overall Experience: My school is all about encouraging young black students to make an impact in his/her community and embody the skills it will take to be successful in today's job market. One of he pros of being a student at Jackson State University is a student will get an extensive amount of help from their peers, faculty, and staff. One of my fondest memories is sitting down with one of my professors and discussing my career goals and what it will take to reach them.

Health & Safety: Our campus police sucks; they are so lazy and rude. Protect yourself! We really don't have any issues like that on campus, but one incident out the whole year. No one really bothers you on campus in that way. We are a loving and respectable campus, we don't condone in those situations, and if they happen it will get resolved in a quickness.

1 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The resident hall for freshman girls are the worst. The space is small, it's the oldest dorm on campus, and we have very few dorms. We need to build more dorms that are on campus and convenient for out of state students and local students who doesn't have transportation.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Our Greek life is the best, it signifies our personalities in whichever fraternity or sorority we join. Greek like is like another family that you have; they will always have your back.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: College was great. The atmosphere on the campus for my peers and staff at school was awesome. Jackson State University just needs a new president because Carolyn Myers is treating to sell our school so that we will not be an HBCU anymore, and she doesn't have our so at heart.

Overall Experience: I am a very energetic student and I applied myseld to the task of understanding the rudiments and higher ciritieria of what is required to think deeply and critucally on information from the text book as well as issues of life. My professor of Philosophy and Thelology was a challenge. However, I earned the grade of "A",. One thing he told me that I never hesitated to come to his office and discuss my struggles in the class or in life so that I could be more successful in the class room and as a person.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: I currently work at Henderson Academy in Chicago, Illinois where I'm an assistant for children whose learning abilities are different. Many students that I worked with taughr me how humble it is to work with young children who are bright and eager to learn each and every day. Students at Henderson Academy face challenges while being at home compose to stepping into the classroom being an inspiration to themselves as well their peers around them. Many students that I have been encountered with have touched me physically, mentally, and emotionally, but I now I can make a difference in those young people lives each and every day from eight to three during the week.

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.
