Terry Road Renamed to University Boulevard
President Carolyn W. Meyers and the Jackson State University family invite you to participate in the Dedication Celebration of the Renaming of Terry Road to University Boulevard. The ceremony will take place on Friday, October 21, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at the corner of University Boulevard and Walter Payton Drive.
In 2000, JSU – Center for University-Based Development, began its e-City Initiative, which goals are to coordinate revitalization efforts within a five-mile radius of its main campus. One of e-City’s primary objectives was the establishment of gateways into the University. This project led to the renaming of Terry Road to University Boulevard. The effort took significant support of the business owners along Terry Road, surrounding neighborhoods associations, and the City of Jackson. University Boulevard emerges from Pascagoula Street to I-20 Terry Road South Exit Ramp. In the future, the University will work with the community to achieve beautification projects, business support services, and code enforcement.
