Let me say the obvious right now- JSU does not have the prestige of a place like Vanderbilt, Duke, or the other so-called "top tier" universities. That said, let me also say that after nearly 2 years at JSU, I wouldn't trade it for any other school anywhere! My older brother goes to UNC Chapel Hill, and is miserable. At JSU, I have experienced fantastic professors, students and a place that welcomes everyone. The saying that they are the friendliest campus in the South is so true. I have had small classes from the beginning, profs that will bend over backwards to help you learn and succeed if you show up for class and put forth the effort, and no foreign grad assistants who don't speak English teaching anything! Not many "fancy" new shiny buildings, but that doesn't matter when you are surrounded by a nurturing student and faculty body. People here really care about the school and each other. We have a new apartment-style dorm attached to the new football stadium addition, and more coming. Renovations everywhere. A President who is accessible to everyone. Greek organizations that aren't too snobby, good sports, and the best marching band on the planet! I am from Georgia and got in state tuition. With the Ga. HOPE scholarship in danger of going away here, there wasn't any reason to stay so I took a chance on JSU with the great in state rate and a scholarship on top of that. I've never reretted my decision. I can drive home 90 minutes if I want, but usually just stay here on campus because there's always somthing going on here. Anniston and Jacksonville are typical dated college towns, but plenty of places to eat. If you don't have a car, there is a free shuttle that runs to stores. This place is big enough to have some big time things, but small enough where you don't get overwhelmed. A diplomas is a diploma, and I am getting my money's worth here. I haven't regretted my choice of schools one bit.
