Even with our steady growth, we still want potential students to keep us at the top of their minds so that they will know Jackson State offers an array of opportunities and flexible academic schedules for traditional and non-traditional students. We’re showing that JSU is a growing part of our community. We’re telling the story that JSU is more than just a HBCU that embraces longstanding traditions but also one that is just as comprehensive as the state’s other larger institutions of higher learning.”
