As an Alumni, it was great to see the campus after so many years. It has grown for the better and is simply beautiful. The bookstore is staffed beyond your needs and the staff was very nice. The new dorms and the layout of the expansion makes me proud to be a Tiger. Go J State.

We ate at the student union. We were totally surptised at the delicious home cooked seafood meal of crab clusters with a large helping of sides. There was no institutional taste to this meal. It seemed to have been prepared with love.

The ballrooms in the campus Union are excellent facilities to hold meetings and accommodate large groups. Parking however is problematic at this building.

Our experience at Jackson State University was wonderful. I look forward to coming back again. The staff and current students were warm and welcoming to us and our daughter. I think she will do well here.

I have not been in Jackson for a few years and have not been to the JSU campus for several years. I had some free time and decided to drive by. I must say that I was very happy with what I saw. Both my mother and aunt worked and retired from the university and I spent many weekends and... More

This is my alma mater. It's a great school to attend. It's not perfect but there are forest opportunities for quality learning, study abroad programs or graduate school.

This is my alma mater. I absolutely loved my college life and feel that I received a great education here. I actively participate in football activities during the season. Its the time where Jackson comes alive and brings money to our city.

I was a student at Jackson State years ago and I can honestly say they continue to improve the campus and facilities over the years. The campus is beautiful with all the amenities needed for a child in college. There's an Apple Store, multiple restaurants and fabulous bookstore on campus. There is a School of Business, School of Engineering, Libral... More
