This is a wonderful college to attend. The professors are very helpful as well as any of the staff here at JSU. Also, is true to say that JSU is the friendliest campus in the south. one undergraduate degree here, and I chose JSU for my second degree. There is a lot of diversity. There are many programs, activitites, research opportunities, clubs, volunteering opportunities, and opportunities for community service. Professors office hours are reasonable, and they will help you with pretty much anything. It is such a beautiful campus. The landscapers do a very well at helping accomplish this. The quad is also a nice spot to drop by for relaxing. Some people even hang their hammocks in the trees there to read, do homework, draw, or take a nap in between classes. It truly is a wonderful campus, and I am proud to say that I am a JSU student!

Jacksonville State University is awesome. There are so many organizations to join for all different interest groups. It seems cheesy, but it really is the friendliest campus in the South! The classes and teachers are great. The housing, especially for freshman on campus is not the best. If you don't want to share a bedroom with a stranger, request a roommate, or try to get a housing exemption. Overall, I am very happy with my choice to attend JSU.
Jacksonville State University is amazing and my experience here has been far beyond my expectations when I imagined college. The administration, professors, faculty, and staff are all generous, and they really look out or the well being of their students, giving them multiple opportunities to succeed. The professors and faculty are approachable and genuine. The courses are taught by professionals with real world experience. The student body is diverse and welcoming, offering a variety of opportunities to understand and experience other cultures.
