William Carey, what can one say besides saying one thing, Christ. With what is going on with the world today and how people can not pray or even say Christian subjects without being criticized, it feels amazing to be at a school where Christ is their main focus. The administration accepts their students as family, understanding the students and helping them out in any way the can. I extremely felt welcomed the first day I arrived here. I brag about my University because it is a place to worship, to make memorable friends and to understand Christ and the life of that age. The education program is outstanding and the pride of the people for becoming who they want to be shows. Other universities should take not of this place, because no other can bet such a college as this one. Proud student of William Carey.

Jackson State University is has a beautiful college campus and has a lot of potential to become greater. I am privileged to be a student-athlete and to represent the school. I am a biology major and the science department is very challenging which will help me to become the best student I can be. The people are very friendly, although the school has a lot of potential in some areas, the school spirit and the love that everyone has for this school is remarkable to me. This is why i would choose my school again if i had to do it all over.

All of the professors are great and willing to help. Everything gets pretty hectic around midterms and finals just because any project a professor gives is going to be due around that time.

Rust college is an great school, but I did not qualify for any scholarships coming to school here. My freshman year first semester was good , but I fell into the category of failure hanging with the wrong crown and among all that got sick every day with an out break of hives. Then , sophomore year I didn't not qualify for FAFSA , because I played around and failed some of the most important classes and now I am responsible for an 6,000 balance. My head is on correctly and I'm here to find aid . I will not stop trying to succeed I am the first to come to college out of an African American family.
