  • Excellent university for the advancement of higher education. The campus is growing. They have added on line classes to there curriculum. Jackson State University is financially sound and poised to be the standard for elite educational institutions.
  • 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.
  • I called the admissions office to discuss a few but very important questions and their line apparently goes in queues so I decided I'd wait because I didn't really have any other choice... I was literally on hold for 58 minutes before I gave up. I would count it as a mishap but I've heard of it being commonplace to take really long times to get anything done in their offices and even in person. The staff is very non chalant about their work so beware and brace yourself should you decide to go there. For a couple of reasons I decided to transfer to this school, but if you have the chance check out Mississippi College; everything there gets done way quicker and the staff are kind; and that's only the start.
  • I don't know how a university can find so many great pp to work there from the time I arrived the police was just great escort to a place to let off show me where to park I go to so many trips like this all year but rarely do you find such great people
  • I gave Jackson state a one star rating because they are very unorganized and when you call them it takes them more 15 to 24 min to answer the phone and I'm still in the phone it's going on 30 min
