Event Details

The beginning of the fall semester marks 50 years since classes were first offered on the Jackson State Community College campus. To commemorate this milestone, a reception will be held on the main campus in the Student Center.

Jackson State registered its first students in September, 1967 and began classes in October with an enrollment of 655. Since that time, the college has grown to an enrollment of nearly 5,000 on 4 full-service campuses. A site in Paris is currently offering classes with plans of becoming JSCC’s fifth campus.

In addition to the reception, photos and documents will be on display that recount the past 50 years of the college. This will also be an opportunity for those who haven’t been on campus in a while to see the changes that have taken place. Those who have never been to Jackson State are also invited to come to the event.
