Jackson State University Reviews
Review Jackson State University
Jackson State is great college for students who want to stay connected with friends, get involved with on and off-campus events, and build relationship with teachers. So far, my experience at Jackson State has been like no other. It has been ranked one of the top HBCUs in the U.S. Jackson State takes its academics very seriously. The campus provides plenty of opportunities for tutoring and many places to study for anything you may need, whether it be for a test, group project, or class assignment. Jackson State offers a wide variety of food choices for students no matter where they come from. There's Mexican, vegetarian options, and even foods with an Asian twist. Also if you have SuperCard, you can use it to eat off campus at any restaurant that accepts it. Jackson State University is a big campus and very diverse. It is beautiful, the professors care and the campus environment is full of history. I made a great decision of picking my HBCU, I hope others do the same!
Not only does Jackson State challenge minds, and change lives, it prepares you for life after college. Students here are faced with numerous decisions but are fortunate enough to have incredible faculty, staff, and resources that will help one make thoughtful choices that are in the best interest for their future. This is one of the many things I love about Thee. One thing I would like to be changed, or dropped, is the out of state. I am not a resident of Mississippi and I understand how that fee can be a pain. Other than that, I would not change a thing about Thee. The campus life is eventful, the school spirit is amazing, students are involved in everything possible, and the alumni are just as involved. Jackson State has made Mississippi my second home. I never saw myself here in the past but I'm glad that I made the decision to come here!
I love Jackson State! The staff and students on campus make the students feel welcomed. The people are very joyful and encouraging. They are also all about getting your work completed before partying and hanging out. There is plenty of help available for those in nees as well. I really enjoy going to Jackson State University, but the only thing I would change is the dorm I live in, other than that everything is excellent. I encourage anybody to go there because it will be a marvelous experience.
