Great college for people on a budget. Small class sizes and overall very nice professors, no campus housing as it is a community college. Few new building on campus and really growing. Great programs for people interested in a field of health sciences.

Enjoyed the nursing program

Madison

Overall, I very much have pride for Jackson State Community College. There is a stereotype surrounding community colleges that my instructors fight everyday to prove wrong. The environment is safe and friendly. The instructors are beyond prepared, there to help, and have high expectations. The food and campus life is active even though it does not partake in Greek Life or have dorms, it offers many clubs and study groups, as well as peer tutoring and stress-reliving clubs during finals week. As far as academics, they have rigorous programs that have established a respected reputation with jobs and careers after graduation for many years. Overall, Jackson State Community College is a school like none other and I am proud to be enrolled here.

Jackson State has welcomed me with open arms since I've first enrolled. The administration offices have done their best regarding getting me registered for classes and taking care of my financial aid. They have also helped me resolve my issue with me not being able my state funded scholarship because of a past incident back at another institution. I am truly grateful for the team Jackson State has put together at this wonderful institution!

  2. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    If I could go back in time and talk to myself as a high school senior, the first thing I would say would be to try and save as much money as I possibly could. Even if I was getting my schooling paid for, it would still be important to save money because right now it is costing me $4,000 dollars a year just my rent and utility bills. Also, I have to pay for food and groceries. It is an expensive lifestyle and it is money that my family does not have. I would tell myself to get a summer job and to save everything so that it would be easier on my parents because they cannot afford everything.

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    That I could do it. I think that was the scariest thing for me, that I am so up in age, to me anyway; furthermore, it has been so long since I was in school that I thought I could never get back in the groove of studying, didn't think I had what it takes to be a successful college student. I also wish that I had known that there are so many people, not just instructors and advisors, but also fellow students, who want to see me and others like me succeed.
