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.

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.
