Jackson State University Reviews
Jackson State University has been an amazing experience. I was surrounded by other students of different backgrounds and learned from highly qualified experienced teachers who deeply care about their students. JSU is definitely the best HBCU out there, as it provides students with multiple opportunities as minorities to put their name on the map. I am a proud to call Jackson State my home and ALMA MATER!
Thee Jackson State University is one of the top 10 best HBCU schools in the nation! This school has given those who attended and are currently attending, a place to call home. The environment is beyond a blessing and has only blossomed more and more each year. Religion plays a huge part in this school as well as education. Education is greatly important and the professors/educators who work here have shown the care, respect, and patience with those students who try their best to be the succeed. Everyday is a great day at Jackson State!
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!
