    Jackson State is truly great experience. The school has a very family like nurturing feel to it and you are sure to meet some lifelong friends here, no matter what walk of life you're from. Homecoming at Jackson State is the best time you can have on a college campus, the alumni flock form all over the country to turn up with students and celebrate being apart of the best HBCU there is! Jackson State is also a place of great and many opportunities, both while you are in and out of school. If you're looking for a college home away from home, look no further!
