Student Affairs

Welcome to Jacksonville State University where You Matter!  As the Vice President for Student Affairs, I am happy you joined the Gamecock family and I want to let you know about programs and services provided by the Division of Student Affairs that are aimed at engaging you in the JSU experience.

Students who fully immerse themselves in college are more likely to be successful academically, socially and personally.  The Dean of Students Office oversees more than 100 student organizations and multiple outlets geared towards your involvement including the Student Government Association, Freshman Forum, 1st & 2nd Year Experience Programs and Fraternity & Sorority Life.  In addition, I encourage students to live on campus because connected students, again, are more likely to be successful.  Be sure to check out residence living options through University Housing.

I urge first year students to stay active through University Recreation where students can participate in Fitness Programs such as kickboxing, yoga and zumba and Intramurals including ultimate frisbee, basketball and inner tube water polo!  Also available at the UREC Center is a rock climbing wall, an indoor pool, an outdoor pool and indoor track.  

The Division of Student Affairs is prepared to walk with you through the JSU experience and we offer an array of services and programs that may be beneficial to you. Counseling Services offers free sessions in either one on one or group formats.  The RMC Student Health Center is a primary health care facility that provides outpatient medical services and promotes preventive health measures to all currently enrolled students.

At JSU... You Matter!

The JSU Division of Student Affairs launched the You Matter campaign in Fall 2017 to convey its core principle that all students are deserving of respect and dignity as individuals.  Regardless of race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national or ethnic origin, age, status as an individual with a disability, protected veteran status, genetic information or political affiliation, students matter at JSU.  For students, the JSU Division of Student Affairs exists to assist you with personal needs, advocate for your voice, listen to your suggestions, and engage you through the higher education lifespan.  

Students, you make a difference in our community and You Matter to us!
