This university is unorganized and unprofessional.AverageEducation
This university is unorganized and unprofessional. Advisors are hardly in their offices and don't respond in a timely manner to emails. I am currently trying to graduate in May 2020. I seen my advisor in January to make my schedule, only to see another advisor and be told my advisor missed a class. So no I have to wait until 2021 Spring when the class is offered again. The financial aid office does not send paperwork when they tell you. They wait until you come in and talk to them. Teachers are self-centered and lazy.

Jackson State University is the Most unorganized HCBUNot so bright
Jackson State University is the Most unorganized HCBU school. My daughter attended in 2014-2015 than fall 2015. It was the biggest mistake I ever made in my life. The financial counselors are a joke! unorganized and unprofessional. The Business office doesn't work with the Financial counselor. They don't know what each other do or who to connect you with and if they did know. They act like they afraid to work with them. The advisers are incompetent and the system they use to enroll kid or outdated. They don't have online classes in a 21-century world and what they do have it's limited subjects. It is in the worst neighborhood. They take all the financial aid and put it into the food places. They feed them the same menu over and over so they can get tried and not us the meal card so they can use their student card where they allow them to draw from the financial aid.

They nickel and dime the kids to take all of their financial aide. If a student get into trouble they take their financial aide instead of calling the parent.

The crime on the campus it just as bad as the inner city.They allow the student stay in dorms in the middle of the worst part of the city.

Jackson state is a great school for foreignersQuite BrightBiology
Jackson state is a great school for foreigners in my opinion they have an amazing program for the foreigners so far as on state or out of state jsu praises you only if you get yourself involved in some type of activity they encourage you to participate in the few of the extra curricular activities they have on campus .. A great school to go to in my opinion it's the right size . I chose to leave jsu for mississippi state for their vet program non the less jsu is average if your looking for a grass roots school jsu is it . Other only negative thing I have to say about jsu is the miscommunication amongst the staff . I enjoyed my freshman year here. But I would never return lol it's up to you really everyone has there different feels for what school fits them best and jsu was not for me . Met a lot of great people professors and staff members alike .
