I have not been in Jackson for a few years and have not been to the JSU campus for several years. I had some free time and decided to drive by. I must say that I was very happy with what I saw. Both my mother and aunt worked and retired from the university and I spent many weekends and... More

This is my alma mater. It's a great school to attend. It's not perfect but there are forest opportunities for quality learning, study abroad programs or graduate school.

This is my alma mater. I absolutely loved my college life and feel that I received a great education here. I actively participate in football activities during the season. Its the time where Jackson comes alive and brings money to our city.

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

They have a great library you will want to visit here and the professors come with extensive backgrounds.
