    I will visit the location sat. to assist any student with their move-in since they will be going thru extra changes. Someone visited already and stated it is real nice, they have JSU all over the place, can’t wait to see it. Great job JSU staff.

  2. Sylvester Taylor, atl alum says:

    This is a great concept and also additional exposure for JSU as we connect more to the downtown Jackson area. With the high level of security and police presence, I’m confident that the students’ safety will be a priority.

    Kudos JSU!

    I think they should let students know sooner than Monday because some students may already be making the preparations to move in to their assigned dorms and if they get selected to move into the new dorms they will have to re-move their stuff. And I’m wondering how will the students get notified? But I think it’s kind of cool, but for someone like me who constantly forgets things, living off campus isn’t too ideal. This picture looks like a room from Campbell Hall though.

  4. ML the Truth says:

    I wish we had this when I was on campus. Congratulations!

  5. Kurtez says:

    Good job Jsu..I know the feeling of not be assigned a dorm. Good way to “not forget” about students who need housing.

  6. Ashley says:

    That is a great idea but I think some type of living arrangements should be made to students who are parents as well.

  7. Alfred Smith Jr. says:

    Now that’s EXCELLENT news! My J-State is definitely coming up!

    I think that’s a great experience, but you all should consider making some single rooms for the upperclassmen as well. I doubt you would want to move way off campus just to still have not have the option of a single room. Very nice though
