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 experience here at JCSU is average. I would change the amount of food choices we have on campu. I would change the way the dorms are set up and how they look. I feel like the dorms could be a lot better and more lenient on visitation but have more active RAs. I would love to have more activities to participate in. Aside from my dislikes, I do enjoy the energy and mini events they do have. I enjoy my classes and my professors. I love how helpful the staff is and how easy it was to enroll and become a student here. I appreciate it all.
