    I was scared to attend Jackson State at first because it was a new environment for me . After getting settled in and starting my classes the days got easier and I made a lot of new friends. Thee I love Jackson State is the best college ever !

    Before you enroll: - Go on tours - Go to events they hold for Prospective Students (usually called High School Day) - Go to the homecoming game/parade (this helped me choose this school from other schools. School spirit is BIG, and if a school is lacking in spirit...might not be a great school) When you get there: - Make friends with people in your hall and other halls. Some great places to do that are the cafeteria, the Plaza and the freshman events on campus - Go to class. High GPA is EVERYTHING here, it pretty much determines your life for the next 4 years. So, go to class and do great. - If you live in a dorm, bring flip-flops/pool shoes to shower in, and keep your room clean. - Join an activity!
