Campus Housing: Jackson State University is a open environment. The students are very sociable and open minded. The cost is very reasonable. The dorms are being renovated so there is a housing shortage. To apply for housing, fill out the application and pay the nonrefundable fee of $100.

Scholarships: I personally did not apply for financial aid at my university, but I have heard that it is somewhat of a hassle from people who did. I have not applied because I am almost certain that it would be impossible for me to be awarded any aid, due to the fact that it is need-based. While I do need financial assistance in order to be able to pay for classes and other necessities, I feel that my financial situation would not meet the criteria required by the school to be considered "in need".

Campus Housing: I have lived in two separate dorm buildings during my time at my university so far. My experiences in these two buildings could not have been more different. The dorm that I resided in my freshman year was less than average. It had community showers, which were almost always dirty. I believe this was due to a lack of courteousness from my fellow residents rather than a lack of effort made by the janitorial staff. The room that I shared with one other student was very small and we did not have control over our heating and air conditioner. The next year, I lived in a dorm that was relatively new. My experience here was 100% better than the previous year. The dorm was nicer, cleaner, and more spacious. The amenities, such as study and laundry rooms, were better furnished; this seemed to make life in general easier. In conclusion, the quality of one's experience of living on campus depends entirely upon which dorm they are assigned. Some are fairly nice, while others are lacking to say the least.

Party Scene: I do not go to any parties. I only go to a Southerners party just for support and because I am a member of the Southerners.

Scholarships: The only issue is the level of disrespect to the students in terms of dealing with financial aid.

Campus Housing: The campus housing is pretty good, but when compared to other schools such as alabama, or auburn the thought of your dorm will start to diminish.

Off-Campus Housing: I have only researched location and pricing and the size of apartments located near the campus. I would rate upon those conditions as excellent. The price for the size and location of the housing is excellent. I do not currently live around campus, but a few towns away, so I cannot comment on the availability or safety.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are options, but nothing too wonderful. There are more local favorites which are really considered chain restaurants.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
