Review Jacksonville State University
My overrall experience at Jacksonville State University had numerous of great moments and hardships. Jacksonville State university campus is one of the free- spirited university I have ever visited and majority of students are down to earth. On campus housing is filled with various of activites and formal events; to add, football season is a huge deal to the Jacksonville State University Gamecock's students and professors. Likewise, the professor's are willing to work one on one with each student if students ask. However, the hardship of attending Jacksonville State University is taking numerous of testing outside of student's majors and financial aid issues.
I am currently a frshman living in Fitzpatrick hall. I love being a fitz chick! Our R.As genuinely depict our title "friendliest campus in the south" they are always there for you, but never over your shoulder about college life. There if you need them, but not shoeltering you by any means. Fitz has free laundry, for whenever you need to use them, they are in the basement. The basement also includes a nice lounge area where you can go study or hang out with friends. It's a nice place to go if you have a lot of people getting together, as your room might not be big enough! The rooms are 2 person rooms with a beds, 2 desks, 2 vanities with mirrors and lots of storage! Way more storage than Curtiss, the other female freshman dorm. The bathrooms are community, but are cleaned twice daily and I have never had a bad experience with our bathrooms! They are kept exceptionally clean, just don't forget to pack shower shoes! All together living on campus has been a great experience for me my freshman year. Is will actually continue living on campus next year in an upperclassmen dorm!
Jacksonville State University is an okay school; especially seeing as it is the cheapest university in Alabama. It has a lot of potential that was not being utilized under President Meehan. Dr. Beehler is doing great things as president. The school has already invested in a new, state-of-the-art student recreational center, a new practice field for the famous Marching Southerners, all of the sports team are making great accomplishments. Also there is a new Advisor for Greek Life so great things will come from that. The SGA is also being utilized more making for a happier student body. As of right now the school is decent. In future years I could see it being one of the best universities in the state of Alabama.
