Learn about the founder of International House, Dr. James Harding Jones:

Dr. James Harding Jones was born on a small farm near the village, in Mississippi around the end of the 19th century. He spent two years in France during World War I. After the war, Dr. Jones married Myra Hume.

At the end of World War II (1946), Dr. Jones conceived the idea of starting an international student program at JSU. By bringing together students from different cultures around the world, they would learn to know and respect one another, thus making a small step toward the goal of world peace. Dr. Jones and Mrs. Jones devoted themselves fully to this endeavor until his retirement in 1964.

โ€œMemories of My Fatherโ€ is a history of the Jones International House Program and the families and backgrounds Dr. James H. and Mrs. Myra Hume Jones. It was written by their son, Dr. William B. Jones:

Our Story

Since 1946, the Jones International House Program has given JSU students the opportunity to learn about other cultures and languages. We bring 20 American students together with 20 international students. They are paired as roommates that way so they can best learn about each otherโ€™s cultures.

The program has grown and evolved over time to create an extended family from all over the world.

We offer scholarships to nearly all of our House members.
