3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The university that I am attending right now is pretty good. So far I'm doing well in my studies and keeping my grades up. There are plenty of resources at my school that I can pull from since most of my teachers in my major personally know me. One thing that I don't like about my school though is that it is overcrowded. I just wish that the school would not try to pull in so many students.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: What makes Jackson State different from any other school is our Sonic Boom of the South Band. The band is a tradition at my school and never seem to let the fans or student down. Also, all the staff that I have encountered have southern hospitality and are overly friend which I love! I would chose this school again because I love my softball coach and I love my friends and teammates!

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Jackson State University is a very good school, however, the priorities of the staff are not always in order. My school seems to be more worried about its outside appearance than its student body. There are many flaws at my university but my overall experience was good.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have had so much fun in my first year! So much fun! I can hardly believe how great it's been. I had a little trouble fitting in the first semester, but I ended up loving it the second semester after finding more friends.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: When I had first visited my school It was very different. coming from Canada, and going down to the south is a very big culture change. In all honesty I also had no idea that I was attending an HBCU school until a couple of weeks into freshman year. That was when I spotted an HBCU t-shirt hanging in the book store ready to be bought by a student. My overall experience thus far has been full of ups and downs. I have met many different types of people that I never thought I would ever meet. Each of these people come with their own unique story. This is part of what I think makes my school unique. Jackson state is full of students that have strong personalities, that do many things in order to make college enjoyable, not only for themselves but also for the student body. What I think makes my school unique is the fact that It has a family feel all over campus. When attending most other schools, its more of a look after yourself mentality. At jackson state many people care and want to see you do well, and this pulls people together. Due to these few reasons as to what makes my school unique. I don't think that I would choose any where else to attend school.

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.

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.

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.

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.
