Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2010
"Jacksonville State University provided me with everything I needed to obtain a bachelors degree in Nursing. The program was online and only required me to come to campus a few times for testing. I was able to maintain a balance in work, family and school life. If I had to go back to do my bachelors degree I would recommend looking into their program."

"Jacksonville State University was a great experience for me! The campus was safe and inviting. The professors were always on my side, pushing me to be the absolute best professional I could be. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Science in Family and Consumer Science with a concentration in Merchandising. My professors provided every avenue of knowlege and experience for me to be sucessful in my field. To this day, I still feel confortable asking my previous advisors for opinions, assistance, and additional knowledge catered to what I need. They paved they way for me to be where I am today, and I am especially thankful for that. I was also able to meet a ton of inspiring colleagues that I follow to this day. Now we are all excelling professionals of our fiels, and I thank JSU for the pportunity to be connected to so many great people."

"Great school! Dr. B is the best in the program. The advisers were a great help in identifying the schedule I needed to complete my degree in a timely manner. It was also helpful that it was all online. Being a wife and a mother, my schedule tends to stay full. However, the classes I took at JSU kept the work purposeful rather than meaningless, requiring me to only complete assignments that I truly gained knowledge from."

"Personally, I was not entirely too impressed with the University during my first 2 years of school. It seemed like that basic classes I took when I was a freshman and a sophomore were not exactly very interesting and did not keep students engaged. Moreover, the professors teaching those classes were not the best and did not have the best credentials. Nevertheless, my last 2 years of school and classes take when I was a Junior and Senior were extremely wonderful. I was extremely impressed with all of the business classes. Finance classes were absolutely memorable. The teaching mythologies were extremely unique and kept students very engaged and eager to learn the new material. Moreover, the assigned projects gave all of the students an idea of the real-life problems and prepared them for careers in the real world. Jacksonville State is a relatively small school with a really small campus. Hence, it is really convenient for students to move from one class to another since all of the buildings are withing the walking distance from each other. Moreover, the location of the city makes the university very appealing. It is a small school far away from other major cities and tourists. Hence, students don't have too many distractions and can fully focus on staying in school and studying. At the same time, Birmingham and Atlanta are just hours away and are within driving distance. Tuition is another factor which makes the University desirable for other students. The tuition rates are drastically lower compared to other schools in the area. For all these reasons, I will highly recommend Jacksonville State University to other students."

"The student-to-professor ratio is fairly low on campus. This allows plenty of opportunities for students to get to know their professors on an individual basis. The professors are more than willing to help students during their time as a student and after graduation. For example, I myself have found that professors are more than willing to help me as a transition from an undergraduate to a graduate student. Not only that, but they are genuinely interest in my success as a student. The campus is know for its friendly southern atmosphere. To my knowledge, the tuition rates are decent (both in-state and out-of-state) in comparison to other colleges of roughly the same size. There are several scholarship opportunities available and can be applied for online. If living on campus is an issue for those in other state, the University offers distance education where a degree can be earned by taken all courses and required testing online. The campus also includes a very enthusiastic international program that accepts students from other countries who would like to study here in America (the program also offers residency at the International House on campus). Campus staff are generally willing to help students in any way possible, even if it is simply putting them in touch with the right people. My time there was great and would definitely recommend the college to other students who are seeking higher education."
