2 College Student

Administration: They have lots of rules, but don't seem to care.

3 College Student

Scholarships: It's lengthily, but I eventually got the help I needed.

3 College Student

Campus Food: The weekend hours are bad for early risers.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: The dorms are decently sized, but not great.

3 College Student

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.

Administration: I haven't really done much on campus to see how strict they are, but I regularly receive emails regarding sexual conduct, drug use or violence in my student email account and their policies relating to the same.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: It's not the best food, but it suffices.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is fine, but living off campus is the best option

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: You cannot expect a five-course meal, but the dining options at JSU are very tasty and creative. WoW is good, but very expensive, so pace yourself. The Diner is alright, but their food gets old very quickly and there isn't much variety. It's also rather dry. Jazzman's is fine, if you're willing to trek to the library or you're already there. Your safest bet is the dining hall, during actual breakfast, lunch, and dinner, where the variety and staff are nice.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is a great experience and I believe that all college-goers should indulge in it, if it is possible for them! It gives you a true sense of community and independence. Applying for housing is simple and worth the little while it takes to complete.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There is a lot of fast food.

Health & Safety: UPD is more concerned with giving out parking tickets before 4:30 and then disappearing when you need them.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Always room for improvement when it comes to Greek/Non-Greek relationships. But if you are involved in one the process is somewhat difficult but completely worth it!

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have excellent Varsity teams in most sports!

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Only two furnished apartments in town and both are very expensive with strict lease rules.

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.
