Congratulations on JSU’s historic enrollment

September 11th, 2013 by jacksonstate

Dear Jacksonians:

By now I am sure you have all heard the great news that we’ve made history once again with a record fall enrollment of 9,134 students. Our student population is a 3.6 percent increase over last fall and represents the highest percentage increase of all Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning. This achievement is nothing short of phenomenal!

I want to congratulate each member of the faculty and staff on this milestone. Because of your dedication to serving our students and your commitment to delivering the highest quality education, JSU has achieved this fantastic result. That’s One JSU!

One of our biggest success stories is our freshman class, which this year reached 1,100 students. That’s more than a 25 percent increase over last fall. Within this class is the highest number ever of freshmen who have met the criteria for JSU’s W.E.B. Du Bois Honors College. We are not only getting more students, but we’re getting the best and the brightest.

I want to especially thank our enrollment management committee and all the people who work to support our enrollment strategies. The growth of our student body – particularly our freshman class – is proof that all of the units on campus play a vital role in attracting and retaining our students. When we work together, anything is possible!

Let us continue to build upon our great success. Keep setting the bar higher, providing excellent customer service and putting our students first. As One JSU, we will make this academic year our best ever!
