The traditional President Bus Tour will begin this week at West Point High School for the 2020 recruiting season. The purpose of the Bus Tour is to provide information about Admissions, Financial Aid, Scholarships and other programs and activities that Jackson State has to offer.

“This initiative is vital because it puts JSU in front of prospective students across the high school spectrum, freshmen through seniors,” says Cheryl Pollard, associate vice president for Enrollment Management. ”The ability to engage students early in their high school career is critical to building a pipeline of potential students which in turns ultimately impacts our student enrollment.”

The dates and locations for the upcoming Presidential Bus Tour are:

  • Wednesday, February 5, 2020 at West Point High School in West Point, MS from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.
  • Wednesday, February 26, 2020 at Horn Lake High School in Horn Lake, MS from 9:30 am to 11:00 am.
  • Wednesday, March 4, 2020 at Holly Springs High School in Holly Springs, MS from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon.
  • Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at Shannon High School in Shannon, MS from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.

“Campus partners from across the enterprise will be attending this program to engage students, faculty and staff,” says Pollard.

The initiative will also highlight JSU’s five academic colleges and other campus departments. For more information regarding the tour, contact 601.979.2913.
