  1. Greate post. Keep writing such kind of info on your site.
    Im really impressed by it.
    Hey there, You’ve done a great job. I’ll definitely digg it and in my view suggest to my friends.
    I’m confident they will be benefited from this site.

  2. From my experience with Mrs. Josie Latham, she goes above and beyond to help students. I would contact her at the number posted above and inquire about this program. Seems like an excellent opportunity for new students. I look forward to my daughter attending this program this summer.

    Also, I am very familiar with HBCU sporting arena’s….although this school lacks some seating….the talent far surpasses the appearance, so give it another chance. Rather basketball, football, etc…..the experience is very unique and exciting.

  3. I have been accepted to Jackson State for the fall of 2011. Is there still time to apply for the summer bridge program?

  4. Please lets talk about the issue at hand GSU get a LIFE and Learn how to Spell FIRST, then You can talk about a facility not being good enough. If your facility is all that they must not be putting money where it needs to go. YOUR EDUCATION BECAUSE YOU CAN NOT SPELL at ALL

  6. Good Morning, I just wanted to comment on two things today. First of all, I was able to attend the JSU-Grambling State University basketball game on Saturday, my first game since moving to Jackson State and I was just really shocked on how poor the facility was. I have been to just a few HBCUs inside their Assembly Centers and JSU has one of the WORST to say of how much money the administration holds. I have never been to a basketball areana on any level let it be high school, college or professional where chairs have to be put out as seatings for the attendees. That was just unbelievable and awful, and then there were football stadium seats behind the basketball goals (like an high school) thats horrible for the collegiate level. I don’t care if the city isn’t into the basketball like football but you have to still be presentable as a school. The lighting in the arena was dull and sucked, the floor wasn’t shiny, the seats are the different colors (blue, red, and goldish), the ventilation system is terrible (as the arena gets hot as there isnt’ enough ceiling room for air circulation, the scoreboard was terrible and is too low to the court….but hey the PIZZA was good though. Jackson State you have to step it up. And then it felt like the entire maching band was there not a Pep Band. There were over 10 drummers and tubas, and brass instruments, thats entirely too much for a indoors basketball game. I couldn’t understand how the players could hear the coaches during time-outs and how the fans could stand the bands loud hazardous sound to the eardrums.

    The second I wanted to know is why doesn’t Jackson State being a pivotal part of African-American History don’t offer a degree in Black or African-American Studies??? Or atleast give classes on Saturdays so that we as Black people don’t forget where we have come from and how far we have gone over the years to today. Just curious, its as we just teach our people to study Black History for one month (the shortest month) per year. Just some food for thought.

    • So what does this have to do with the Summer Bridge Program???!!!??? I’m just saying!!!! Just some food for thought

      • Hmmmm, maybe JSU would rather spend the extra money on student education. Oh yea right that is the real purpose for the university. Also, where did you go to college check your spelling. I am a graduate and I love it and I love what they stand for keep it up JSU!!
