Johnson C. Smith University Reviews
Johnson C. Smith University has given me an experience I would never forget. Being from a poor family as well as neighborhood once gave me the impression that I would not leave that situation. Battling depression and other feelings were indescribable as far as words go. I visited JCSU during my preteen years and could only dream of a chance to enroll. Well, 2017 I was accepted and experienced college at 27 years old. That was the most exhilarating, unbelievable, phenomenal moment in my life. I strongly recommend JCSU to anyone looking to make a change for themselves or study in a pleasant environment.JCSU saved my life.
