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.

JSU named 2014 Military Friendly School

December 20th, 2013 by studentlife


Military Advanced Education (MAE) has awarded Jackson State University the designation of a Top Military-Friendly School in its 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities, just released in print, and available online at www.mae-kmi.com.

At Jackson State, Timothy Abram is the director of the Veterans and Military Center, which provides services to improve and enhance the success of student veterans, service members and dependents. The Center’s outreach programs provide student support services focused on the special needs and requirements of today’s military student. Services include: advising and assisting prospective VSDS students on the admission process, military education benefits, counsleing and career resources.

From community colleges to state universities, online universities and nationally known centers of higher learning, MAE’s 2014 Guide to Military-Friendly Colleges & Universities provides potential students with information about institutions that go out of their way to give back to our men and women in uniform.

Among the attributes considered in evaluating this year’s institution for inclusion in the Guide are the flexibility of online learning options, extent of transfer credits accepted by degree level, on-campus ROTC, Servicemember Opportunity Colleges (SOC) participation, on-campus active duty/veteran assistance, the support provided to the families of servicemembers, faculty trained in veteran reintegration issues, presence on military installations, and full-time counselors trained in veteran-specific mental health concerns, to name but a few.

“Our staff used strict criteria to evaluate the submissions of the respondents, and we had a record number of schools participating this year. We believe the Guide serves as an invaluable tool for both education services officers and transition officers when advising servicemembers about their educational opportunities,” said Kelly Fodel, MAE’s editor.

“I encourage students and ESOs to check out our searchable database online,” Fodel said. “We designed this database with the military student in mind. We want to help them make informed choices, so we are giving them access to all the survey questions and answers provided by the schools, as well as explanations about critical issues like the schools’ activation and deployment policies, withdrawal policies, scholarship and financial aid information and important support information.”
