3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Depending on your financial counselor, financial aid can go very smoothly but like most colleges, Jackson state is money hungry. So they may prevent you from getting all that you need.

2 College Freshman

Campus Food: The cafe can get really bad sometimes. Like there won't be a lot of choices on the weekends and sometimes the food is just straight up nasty. But all the other source of food is pretty good. Like chi chic-fil-a, Burger King, subway, etc.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The freshman dorms are the worst. But as an upperclassmen, they get better. Students are very friendly on campus. There are a lot of convenient places and restaurants on campus. Housing process is pretty easy.

Greek Life: I am a non- Greek and they are students just as I am. Some students may view my answer differently. There are no Greek housing.

2 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: The cost of off campus living is very expensive

4 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: The party scenes are great, the best parties take place at greek shows and greek parties. The parties will make a student become responsible because there's a choice and maybe a consequence.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining options are average, we are able to use student discounts in different areas.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: The campus strictness at JSU is very strict, I appreciate it and I feel safe.

3 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: The Athletics are very important at my school .

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The off campus housing is ok. Most people choose the Palisades because off the prices

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus dining is convenient at late night hours, cost friendly for students, and tastes great.

4 College Sophomore

Party Scene: The parties are nice. There should be more parties held on campus, I think. So far the best parties have been held at the Regency and the Mansion.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
