    This is great. JSU is always doing positive things.

  2. The premier and only Urban University of Mississippi has a shining spotlight again. Time and time again, Jackson State continues to luminate the community, and iin this case, the season aswell. imagine the smiles of all who choose to come and be dazzled by one of the beautiful campuses in America. Surly, the display will add luster and envy for others to copy and follow. Congratulations Jackson State for waking us up. Certainly, we expect this from jackson State University
    Peace and Blessings
