They are inspiring and great role models for me.”

“Initially I wasn’t coming to any of the sessions because I didn’t think that it would be extremely beneficial and I didn’t want to stay on campus that long. But after dropping in for a while, the hours attended provided me with info that I needed – really needed! I’m grateful for having this opportunity and interacting with the mentors and other students. I’ve truly been inspired, educated, and cultivated! Thanks for thinking of JSU and stopping by!”
