Jackson State University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (3)
When I chose Jackson State University to pursue my undergraduate and graduate studies it was one of the best decisions I ever made. Being there felt so right and everyone I encountered cared. If I had to sum the university up in one word, it would be "Family".
I really was excited to go to a HBCU, I did my research on the program that I wanted to enroll in. I visited the school, everyone is very nice (of course it is the south). I originally came from California. My first year was good. I didn't have any problems. My second year I had problems with getting financial aid, classes, and a few other things. Once I graduated (above a 3.0 gpa) I was sure that I would get a job in my field back home. It is now 2015 going into 2016 and I have yet to have a career in Mass Communications or Marketing. If you are from out of state I would say don't attend. They can care less about their out of state students unless you play a major sport for them.
When choosing a school out of high school, I had many to select from. Jackson State University felt so much like home. From the students attending to the staff that worked there. It just seemed that everyone cared about the growth of students. The professors are like family and the department heads can be your best friend. I would suggest for the best experience one should learn to respect the chain of command. My experience at Jackson State University prepared me for my career and I'm thankful of the people I encountered during my undergraduate years. I would definitely recommend this university to anyone taking their education seriously.
