I liked how everyone on campus was very nice. Everyone always had a smile and was willing to offer a helping hand when needed. I just wish that they had a larger variety of majors. They don't have my major so I'm having to transfer to a different university.

My time at Jacksonville State University has been a roller coaster of emotions and growth. The people at the school have helped me grow into an outgoing, super involved person, but I have rarely been recognized for my hard work. I have had to work 2-3 jobs at time throughout my entire college career just to be able to afford going to JSU and it is one of the cheapest school in Alabama. The only issue the school needs to work on is where they decide to invest their money. Most of the money my school receives goes towards athletics and not on bettering learning services and students. I wish I had more time to work independently with the professors to develop research topics, but finding time between multiple jobs, involvement on campus, and classes is difficult. Other than not receiving scholarships from my school and not having time to develop research, it has been a good experience and I am glad I got an opportunity to be a part of one of the best programs on campus - the international house program.

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.
