    #JSULove - ""The first time I spoke to Darion was at a forum hosted by his fraternity Phi Beta Sigma, where we engaged in a friendly conversation. Little did we know, a year later a friendly conversation would blossom into something much more. After completing our studies at Jackson State University in 2014, we both relocated back to my home state of Texas. On June 10, 2016, Darion popped the BIG question while on vacation in San Antonio, TX, which of course I said YES! Our wedding date is set for September 2, 2017 in Dallas, TX."" - Jasmine (c/o 2012 and 2014), talking about her engagement to Darion (c/o 2014). Congratulations, Jasmine and Darion!

    #PeopleofJSU - ""I feel like HBCUs are perceived negatively by outsiders. Im from Chicago. I wasnt around a lot of people who went to HBCUs. Even when I was applying to schools, my high school counselor told me that HBCUs were just party schools and that I should go somewhere else. But Jackson State has been a hub of opportunity since Ive been here. I got here this time last year. When I came here, I had never seen more African Americans in any one place in my life. In my first semester, I met a lot of people. Like, one of my friends is an opera singer, and another is a violinist. I never saw that in Chicago from somebody of my race. I also was able to go to Atlanta, for free, for the AEI, an entrepreneurship conference. I already have a Union Pacific internship scheduled for this summer through the College of Business. I got to meet a lot of incredible people for my business, Historically Fresh. I was able to go to Innovate Mississippi, and we actually won second place there. JSU really just opened the doors up for me for things I can do and the network of people I can have access to."" - Javier, senior business management major from Chicago Read More of Javier''s story at JSUMS.edu/peopleofjsu

    Everyone! Did you know JSU is consistently ranked in the Top-5 in Minority Degree Producers, and that we have a 70% Job Placement rate?
