JACKSON, Mississippi — Jackson State University opens for classes in Madison Wednesday, offering 16 classes for undergraduate and graduate students this summer.
Four months after receiving the state College Board's approval to expand to Madison, The Clarion-Ledger reports (http://on.thec-l.com/10WvZCg ) the 8,600 square feet of space — decorated JSU blue — in a leased office building will be ready for the estimated 300 students this summer and 500 in the fall.
Eleven upper level undergraduate courses on subjects including real estate, finance, criminal justice and philosophy will be taught during the two summer sessions, and five graduate-level courses in education, entrepreneurship and technology will be offered during an eight-week session.
So far, students are enrolled in all 16 classes.
