September 5th, 2017 by studentaffairs

Download the 2017 Freshmen Intern Application.

The SGA Freshman Intern Program is a new initiative that will allow freshmen the opportunity to learn more about SGA and its role on campus to build future leaders.  This program will allow students to become familiar with the processes of SGA and build relationships with the current administration and other student leaders.

This program is open to freshmen students of all majors. No prior leadership experience is required.

The key elements of the Freshman Intern Program includes: leadership development, event and project planning experience, relationship building, and opportunities to identify how you could continue to improve the student experience at JSU. As an Intern, you will work closely with the committees of the Legislative Branch to gain direct insight of serving as a Student Senator. Interns are non-voting members of SGA and will attend various committee and class meetings. Interns are expected to maintain a 3.0 CGPA.

August 5th, 2014 by studentlife



     The Career Services Center at Jackson State University was awarded $2,500 from the Enterprise Holdings Foundation, thanks to the corporate partnership between the Center and Enterprise.

     This award was presented by Enterprise Regional Vice President Brad Garrison, and April McClung, Regional Talent Acquisition Manager of Enterprise Holdings.  McClung is also the person who nominated the Career Services Center to receive the award and has been recruiting top JSU Talent for more than 13 years. 

     Career Services Center established the Corporate Partners Program as a partnership that will provide  more visibility for companies that recruit on our campus and lead to more internship and full-time career opportunities for JSU students, said Lashonda Jordan, director of JSU Career Services.

     The Enterprise Holdings Foundation was established to allow the company to give back to the communities where our customers and employees live and work. The Foundation has contributed more than $200 million to thousands of registered non-profit efforts since its inception.
