    You can join clubs for fun. There is not much to do out side of the campus especially if you don't have a car.

    Meeting new people from various places is fun. The chill spot on Jackson State's campus is the plaza (also called the walkway), the student center, library (yes I said library lol some students do prefer to chill there as well) and etc.

    Jackson is a decent sized city, but the problem is you need a car to get everywhere because things are far apart and public transportation is very slow. Several parties a year take place at the Regency or the Mansion, venues not too far from the school. But if you're not into partying there is almost always an event of some type to get into on campus. There are also PLENTY of organizations to get involved in on campus. The student center has a game room and lounge area and every other Friday around 12 the plaza host a hot spot which is just a small celebration with music and dancing, JSU's way of bringing in the weekend.

    There are many different events that clubs have, for example, the fashion show that the fashion club hosts. People tailgate throughout the student plaza. There are plays, concerts, and parties depending on where you go.

    There are many clubs and organizations to engage in. Jackson State University has different events during different seasons specifically for students. Attending football games is another thing one can do for fun at Jackson State University!

    Jackson State has a very active intramural sports program for those athletes who do not play for the school. You do not have to be a music major to be in choir or band. The Marching Band, called the Sonic Boom of the South, is a pleasure to watch, and all athletic games, even football games, are free for students! Free movies are periodically shown in the student theater, and the drama department puts on affordable and sometimes free shows. Throughout the year, there are free concerts, step shows, picnics, and dance performances. In the student center, there is a game room with Xboxes, Playstations, card tables, and pool tables. The gym and basketball courts are open until 9 at night.
