Nice school.

I happened to be in the neighborhood after touring their small fire museum which was fun. The school itself is nice. It definitely looks and feels like it is Jackson's University... read more

I was a student at Jackson State years ago and I can honestly say they continue to improve the campus and facilities over the years. The campus is beautiful with all the amenities needed for a child in college. There's an Apple Store, multiple restaurants and fabulous bookstore on campus. There is a School of Business, School of Engineering, Libral... More

JSU is in the top 10 schools for aids in the U.S. I would never attend this school !!!! I live close to this school and they party all the time and smoke marijuana out side of the school

Nothing really fancy but lots if student support and loud JSU fans. I went to four games and met some real characters. Just down the street on Walter Payton drive. $5 entry and good hospitality.

I visited the campus of Jackson State University during their homecoming weekend of 10/18/13. It was quite ironic that the game never came about as their opponent, Grambling State University, boycotted the game due to grievances with their administration. Jackson State decided to move forward by having the team scrimmage the first half of the game. Their band played during... More

This place is a joke. Anyone can attend, I mean anyone. Campus security can't keep up with all of the crime here. A teacher was robbed and shot in the face after her biology lab a few semesters ago. Why waste your time or pay for an essentially WORTHLESS education? Sports have been suspended for various reasons. Plain unbelievable.

I didn't take any official tours. Just strolled campus as it was holiday break, not in full swing. I probably would have enjoyed a tour if I could learn... More
