JSU is known as the "Friendliest Campus in the South" and every day we strive to provide a smile and world class customer service to all who visit us on campus or via our website. It is all part of our "up close and personal" approach to higher education. We are a campus where our students get to know our faculty and staff personally through small class sizes, one-on-one interactions, and student engagement activities. It is important to all of us at JSU that our students are engaged in the life of our campus and prepared for their future careers and lives as responsible citizens.

As a leader at JSU, you have the opportunity to help recruit and mentor new employees who will help grow the "Friendliest Campus" spirit in all our interactions with our students and each other.
