| Finishing sophomore year here. Some observations, both good and bad:|
Most instructors here are amazing. But I had had a few that are beyond horrible. They are notorious for being bad, both on campus and online as rated by students. It's like there's no middle ground with quality of professors. I guess that's they way at any college. On campus food quality was great until this year, especially Hopper Hall. Sodexo has really messed up this year. Food is bad, and they close when they are supposed to be open- and half the food stations are always empty. There are some really low class inner city students here- guess they are on the Pell or other financial aid. Some really ghetto-like behavior. Most freshmen- they don't seem to last past the first year. Campus police are the nastiest I've seen anywhere. Not helpful or friendly, very heavy handed. All they do is parking enforcement. Notorious for being nasty dudes. That's probably the worst part of JSU.
But some fantastic people here, also. Not a lot of money here. Students generally come from poorer backgrounds than Auburn and UA. Overall, students incredibly nice. A great nurturing friendly campus. Incredible band, and football and other sports are pretty decent. Lots of things to do on this sleepy little campus. Really feels like home.

| JSU's nursing program is tough to get into and very challenging but I feel I will be very prepared to take boards and be a nurse. All of the faculty and administration are willing to help and want us to be the best nurses possible. |

| The admin at this college is very bad. Ever time I had a question about how to take care of things outside of classwork I had to run all around the campus and still have unresolved issues and no one there seems to know how to fix problems and just push me off to someone else. I had to withdrawal for a semester and ask before i did if there would be any problem they said no and now they are billing me for a semester I have not recieved. Several of the teachers are no help and assign to much busy work that teachs nothing. Advisors don't know how to advise and tell me something different each time i see them and seem as if they don't want to waste time helping me. |
