    What to do for fun

    I record Music for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food is good on occasions. I usually eat in Cafeteria on Wednesday and Friday because on Wednesday they serve home made fried chicken and on Fridays they serve fried catfish

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are not nice at all. Most of the time the water is cold and the fire alarms go off a lot at night. At Jarvis there are no reliable food sources.

    Academic Rigor

    This School has had many issues with its accreditation .

    Tips for prospective students

    If you plan on attending Jarvis Christian College you should consider getting a vehicle before you come. This campus is located in the country with very little attractions.

    Campus Safety

    We have security patrolling our grounds 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

    Greek Life

    We, as an HBCU have the Divine Nine. However, the Kappa's have been suspended from the yard for ten years (only two years have passed). Greek Life is the only life on campus and is so much fun when the opportunity is given for a social night life.

    Clubs and Activities

    For Jarvis to be an active campus, there are less than ten (not including the Divine Nine) organizations established on campus.

    Great for these types of students

    Students who love small, family like atmospheres.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Once a year, students gather in the middle of the night and walk to the graveyard on campus or try to make a journey through the wooded acreage on campus.

    Bang for the buck

    I constantly hear students complaining about how much they spend to attend college at Jarvis, and have nothing to do.

    What to do for fun

    To have the most fun, you must find transportation and go into the city and enjoy the nightlife in Tyler, Texas.

    Food and Dining

    There is only one place to eat on campus and they have specified dining hours.

    Dorm Life

    Whatever dorm you choose to enter, there will always be a few people hanging out playing dominoes, watching television or just hanging out.

    Academic Rigor

    Students can easily pass these courses, so long as they do their work, attend class and develop a good rapport with the professors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Carefully weigh your options before deciding to come to Jarvis. It is not the best school to gain a complete college experience. However, there are ample opportunities available to every student.

    In three sentences

    Jarvis is small but provides a superior education. Everyone knows everyone. Jarvis provides ample opportunity for a student to get involved and stay in a position of prominence.

    What to do for fun

    Dominoes and any sport you can think of.

    Food and Dining

    Typical college cafe food. Somedays it's the best; most of the time average.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is small and that makes it even more fun because everyone knows each other so it becomes a big campus family.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics are the number one priority at Jarvis. All the classes are hands on and professors make it their duty to help all students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Always go to class no matter what.

    In three sentences

    Jarvis Christian College is a historically black college. Traditional and hands on. Perfect for students who want the college experience without being on a big campus.

    Campus Safety

    The safety is great. 24 hour security and protection at ALL times. I always feel safe walking on this campus no matter if it is day or night.

    Greek Life

    I really cannot comment on this but I have heard that it is fun from people I talk to!!

    Clubs and Activities

    A lot of the time they do try to plan many activities and do stuff for the students such as festivals concerts and movie night and dinners as well as parties. So they do have plenty of things to keep you busy

    Great for these types of students

    For students who want to party and just have major fun this is NOT the campus for you as there is not a lot around to do. However for those who are serious about an education and don't mind the quiet and some boredom it is great!! I do enjoy it here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I like the nature trail that is there. The location seems isolated but still unique and serene.

    Bang for the buck

    It is a very affordable college in my opinion especially considering how much I paid for both room board and books for both semesters and still had money left over.

    What to do for fun

    As far as fun, there is not much to do here as it is out in the middle of nowhere, however the nearby towns have things you can do and it is close cheap and convenient.

    Food and Dining

    I really cannot speak on the food because I cook my own meals in my apartment on campus, but I have heard it is pretty ok.

    Dorm Life

    Being a single mom they have student parent apartments so that I am able to be with my son. I do like the dorm life and accommodations provided. Could use some updating but still great.

    Academic Rigor

    As long as you keep up with your work and attend classes and make valid efforts the classes are not too hard.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you are there for your education and not to goof around and waste money because they do have a strict attendance policy that they enforce and it reflects on your grades tremendously.

    In three sentences

    It is a pretty peaceful college. It is a college that works with all of its students and their needs. The teachers there are wonderful
