    Jackson State is one of the cheapest, if not THE cheapest, in the state. You really get your moneys' worth. The professors are intelligent and up-to-date in their fields. The President is forward thinking and wants the absolute BEST for the school. With the exception of the books, which are expensive everywhere, you really can't beat it.
