Review Johnson C. Smith University
There is nothing like game day! From football, basketball, track and field, tennis, etc. Our teams always gives the crowd what they came for. And our support keeps their spirits up. Our band is loud and our cheers are strong. We have the best school spirit. Even with losses you still can feel that great JCSU pride in the air. We love all sports and support all teams.
My all over experience with Johnson C. Smith so has been wonderful, campus life has been great. Meeting students from different states and different culture has been awarding experience. The dorms and the cafeteria need a little bit of upgrading. The dorms I understand represent history but a little bit of renovation would not hurt. The wireless system needs to be upgraded. The menu could be change also, the food is not that great but manageable. All and all I love my school I would not change it for anything.
