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.
