My car was vandalized. I was yelled at by a housing director for my dorm for something that she had no part in. My payments increased and the school could never give a reason for increasing my payments by 100 dollars. I have medical problems and since I'm a freshman I'm not allowed to leave and continue classes online while I need surgery.

I have been very surprised by the value and quality of education I'm getting at JSU. It's harder than I thought it would be, but teachers are willing for the most part to take the extra time to help you. I've had a couple of really bad teachers here, but most are pretty great. ]]

Football has gotten very good here, and the southerners are the best anywhere. A lot of students go home on weekends and I don't understand why- lots to get involved in here.

Campus cops are the worst- very rude and all they care about is writing parking tickets. The food isn't too bad. The dorms are so-so. The newer stadium tower is a good place to live. Off-campus housing is just okay. Most apartments are pretty run down. The campus needs lots of renovations and new construction. But the quality of education I'm getting far outweighs the lack of new shiny buildings for me anyway. I made a good choice coming to JSU.

After graduating from JSU, I applied and was accepted to UAB in pharmacology/toxicology PhD program. They only accept 2 people per year. In my classes, I found that I knew more on the subjects being taught than the others that had gone to the larger, more "known" universities. I learned a lot from JSU, enjoyed the professors, and believe they put into you what you put into the program. They're always available and willing to help, but you can't just show up (JSU). It doesn't work that way. You have to study and be a good student. Definitely not a gimme degree.
