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.

5 College Student

Health & Safety: With a reputation like "the friendliest campus in the south" the campus is generally pretty safe. I feel safe and all of my friends are seem to feel the same on campus.

4 College Student

Greek Life: While we have Greek Life at JSU I am not involved in it. However, I have never heard any bad things about the Greek Life on campus. In fact, anything I have ever heard about the great life is gererally positive.

3 College Student

Athletics: The sports at JSU are a very large part of the culture. While our team may not be the greatest there is a very large amount of school spirit. The students avidly attend the sporting events to cheer on our team to what will hopefully be a victory.

5 College Student

Overall Experience: Jacksonville State is an amazing place. In the time I have been there, the reputation of being "the friendliest campus in the south" has really shown through. I have yet to meet a single person that wasn't awesome. All together this school is amazing and I wouldn't trade the memories that I have made in just the one short year I have been there for the world.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The cleanliness of campus is very good! The janitorial staff does a very very good job!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I LOVE JSU. EVERYONE NEEDS TO GO TO JSU. It is an amazing school. I would not want to be anywhere else.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I have already been offered a job after graduation and I hope to get it!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I wish the dorms were more updated like the newest ones are, but, hey, they do the job and freshmen don't get the luxury.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am personally a member of Alpha Omicron Pi sorority on campus and I LOVE IT! JSU is a smaller 4-year, so we don't have many sororities or fraternities. But what we do have is amazing. There are always sheet signs up on campus to announce events and people from all over school come and join us! It is amazing and every organization raises thousands for their philanthropy.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: Our football team won the OVC National championship this year along with out softball team. JSU football games are a HUGE deal. Everyone comes out and tailgates! We went all the way to Frisco for the National Championship but we sadly lost. All sports carry a huge student section and apparel for every sport. Even intermurals!

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love JSU more than any other college I could think of. I love it so much I tried out to be a JSU ambassador and was chosen to be one of 25. For the whole school that is, so it is a very big deal. JSU is a 'Gem of the Hills' because most people might not know about it but it is so amazing. JSU has so many things to offer their students and so many benefits to being a student. I would recommend JSU to anyone looking for a fun, friends, serious, educational college.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel pretty safe on campus.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life could be better.

1 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I wanted to love this university but I hate it.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus. There are always campus police around as well as professors and other students. I feel safe being alone on campus. I haven't heard of any personal stories of harm or harassment while I've been at jsu.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: My courses are hard and it takes a lot of effort to make good grades but the hard work will be worth it in the long run.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I've got several opportunities to do research and internships that count toward my degree that help in a couple of ways. First it gives me an advantage into going in my future career field, already having experience as well as counting toward my degree to graduate.

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.
