ACADEMICS ARE LIFE! Professors are here for you if you need them, and they want you to do a good job in their classes. GPA is everything, so make it count.
Joiya from Chicago, IL
Academics at JSU are top priority . Education is very important and the professors take it very seriously.A high GPA is everything and it matters everywhere.
Kasey
All of Jackson State University's professors have long history and are very diverse! I doubt if you will ever meet a teacher that won't have any knowledge to share with you. But most importantly, they care about teaching just like you should care about learning.
Jasmyne from Saint Louis, MO
JSU offers a wide variety of degree programs, many of which are nationally recognized and celebrated. The general core courses have a variety of teachers and scheduling times so there is plenty of opportunity to find a teacher and class time that can help you learn best and is best suited to your learning style. All across the campus, you will hear the phrase, students who go to class tend to pass, and this is very true on JSU's campus. Do not take any class too lightly. Lastly, JSU offers a nurturing yet challenging environment, the teachers will not baby you but they try to help you, especially if they see you making an effort and showing an interest in what is going on in the class. Communicating with your department and teachers is just as important as any other thing when it comes to being successful academically at Jackson State.
Chris Coleman from Chicago, IL
There is a saying at Jackson State: Students who come to class tend to pass. More often than not, the key to getting a good grade in a course is simply showing up. Some teachers do not care about attendance, but others will hold students accountable and attendance will be reflected tin their grades. Learn how to study in a way that works for you, but do not stress if you do not grasp a concept because many professors here drop the lowest quiz/test grade or grade on a curve. There is tutoring available though the library and through the honors college.
