4 College Sophomore

Athletics: The football games are what everyone looks foreword too and are great! but that's about it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers are about half and half when it comes to quality. The administration staff is awful thought so pray you don't have to deal with them.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The courses are always good if the professor is passionate about it. I've only switched classes because of a professor once. I had taken a class on the other side of campus and had to run to this class. (It was the first day.) I got in and I had no idea what she was talking about or meant and so I switched classes. I knew I wasn't going to well in her class if I couldn't understand her. The class sizes are decent, unless you're taking a science class. This classes are huge lecture classes.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've heard that people who graduate with an education degree from JSU get jobs pretty easily. There are plenty of schools near that you can internship at. The alumni are a huge part of the school. They do a lot of funding for the band specifically. The colorguard alumni come back to watch us and talk to us. They spin with us during the alumni reunion game. I think recruiting could do better and go out more often to the high schools in the state. I don't remeber if they came to my high school or not. The career center/services is great. I also get an email from them about job opportunities coming up.

Health & Safety: We have the police hall right on campus if we need anything. Thankfully I never have witnessed campus crime. I feel pretty safe walking around campus. I know if I have a night class, I can ask the police to escort me.

Campus Housing: My freshman year in the dorm was bad. I do NOT like the community bathrooms!!!!! I would constantly get out of the shower in my towel wrap and a boy would be in the hall! Not okay!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only one freshman girl dormitory had its on bathroom and I did not get into that one. When we came back from winter break the heat was awful for a couple of days. They had it on too hot and we couldn't control it. The dorm lady was always rude. Thankfully I had a good roommate. The dorm lady would not let other people switch if they had a bad roommate. There were fights in the halls constantly. Girls yelling to one another and being loud at all times of the night and day. Girls were smoking weed on my floor and never got in trouble for it. There was one RA who wouldn't let my sister come up to my room because she didn't have an ID. She was too young to have an ID. The RA's would befriend girls. They're suppose to be watching the doors, they had girls standing all around talking to them. They weren't paying any attention to who was coming in and out.

Athletics: Our coliseum was just renovated and it looks fantastic. I think they are thinking about tearing the coliseum down and build it again. They plan to pull up the football turf and put down new turf. This year our football team went all the way to the national championship. The student section was usually maxed out. The fans were great, especially during the playoff games. We have the best alumni. School spirit is awesome. The softball team went to playoffs and we had an alumni win the masters.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The past, almost three years at JSU have been great. If I started all over, I wouldn't choose any other school. Everyone is super friendly and I had an easy time making friends in classes and on the band field. My favorite classes were my education classes, because my professors were passionate about teaching us. Kappa Kappa Psi prepared me for professional interviews, how to work with many different personalities, problem solving skills, and much more. Southerners gave me a huge family and my best friends. EngageJSU gave me a place to be a part of where I could grow spiritually while at college.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived in Fitz and I would rate that two star. I also lived in Meehan and I would rate that four star.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life seems to be pretty fun. I'm non Greek however

4 College Junior

Athletics: I am only aware of the football team and they are pretty good. I hear the softball team is good to tho.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I choose my school because I got a scholarship so I wouldn't have to go into a lot of student debt. I would definitely make that choice again. I feel JSU will prepare me for my future career.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think I will be okay getting a job

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I have loved most of my teachers

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I don't personally live in the housing

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life has made my college experience amazing

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: JSU loves our athletes and our football team

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I truly love Jacksonville State

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The cost of housing is pretty pricey, but at least it is close to class, doing away with spending money on gas to get to class.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Sororities and Fraternities seem to set up a lot of events around campus, which is a good thing. I do not believe there are housing options for sororities at Jacksonville State University.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The most noteworthy sport at Jacksonville State University is football. Last season the football team nearly won a football game against Auburn University, despite the fact that Jacksonville State has a much smaller football team than Auburn University. This seemed to bring a lot of attention to Jacksonville State University and strengthen the fan support.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers and staff are friendly at Jacksonville State University. I also enjoy the activities that are scheduled for students, such as Wellness Wednesdays, in which students can buy a nutritional meal for five dollars and, if they choose, learn about how the meal was made.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like going to school here but it gets a little boring sometimes

4 College Student

Overall Experience: All of my classes have been great. They have been relitively small, with the largest having a 100 students. This allows for the proffessors to get to know the students better and allows for better interpersonal relationships as a result.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: I haven't really heard of anybody that had trouble finding a job with a degree from JSU and all of the jobs seem to be worrthwhile.

The first time you wander around campus at Jacksonville State University and feel the sun shining through the trees, you will begin to understand what it means to be a JSU Gamecock. It is a mix of old Southern charm and a wide new world of possibilities. It is a new world of wearing the game day crimson and cheering with your fellow students in the student section at football games and feeling the stadium vibrate with the sound of The Marching Southeners. It is walking through the Quad and staring up at the stone buildings and realizing that this place is more than bricks and stone. It is making friends that last and maybe even finding love.

It is about realizing who you are, who you want to be, and how to get there. It is a journey, not a destination. It is sitting down on the grass with a textbook for the first time in your life and studying, not to please someone else, but because you have realized that you want greatness, you want to be the best you can be for you. Your professors are interested in you. They won't pass you unless you deserve it, but they are there to help you succeed. For the faculty and staff, from the president to cashiers and custodians, friendliness is a mainstay. They always have a smile for students. You will be accepted for you. This place has deep roots and a wide open sky, tradition and possibilities. You write your story, and JSU is a great place to start.
