Happy National Hispanic Heritage month, Gamecocks!

National Hispanic Heritage Month celebrates the histories, cultures, and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Central and South America. The observation started in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week. In 1988, it was expanded to a 30-day celebration and was enacted into law.

This monthlong-celebration starts on Sept. 15, because it’s the anniversary of independence for several Latin American countries. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on Sept. 16 and Sept. 18, respectively.

Here at JSU, we have a full month of events to celebrate, check out the list ➡️ https://bit.ly/2ZDU05R

Two exciting pop culture events will put JSU in the spotlight tomorrow. First up, former student and football player Riley Green will perform live on CBS on Sept. 16th as part of the 55th Academy of Country Music Awards. The Jacksonville native has won New Male Artist of the Year. The program begins at 7 p.m. That same day, Netflix will drop "The Devil All the Time," a star-studded gothic saga that was filmed, in part, in the Jacksonville area. The 2-hour movie is set to be released at 2 a.m., leaving plenty of time for a JSU double-feature.

09/03/2020

Jacksonville State University offers its condolences and support to the family of Dr. Bill Harbour. On August 27, Harbour passed away in Atlanta following a long illness.

His story began in Piedmont, Ala., where he grew up as the son of a cotton mill worker. Although he was expected to run the family barbershop after high school, he chose to pursue higher education so he applied, nearby, to Jacksonville State University. It was 1960, he was black, and he was denied admission.

So Harbour applied to Tennessee State University, an HBCU, where he was accepted and became a member of the Student Central Committee of the Nashville Christian Leadership Council. He participated in actions resulting in the integration of lunch counters and theatres in Nashville.

As the Freedom Riders National Monument was established, with leadership and support from JSU, the institution reacquainted itself with Dr. Harbour. Shortly thereafter, as an act of reconciliation and support for his esteemed career, he was invited to keynote the first graduation ceremony ever held in the new JSU Stadium.

Harbour helped JSU recognize opportunities to become more inclusive. The Freedom Riders National Monument was established, with leadership and support from JSU.

From being denied admission to being honored for his leadership, we are reminded of the words of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.: "The arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice."

Gamecocks, we have a few announcements for you:

1. Due to concerns regarding COVID-19, Jacksonville State University is instituting a two-week pause on all in-person student organization events effective immediately. Any in-person activity or event sponsored or endorsed by an organization, including those that occur on or off campus, is prohibited until September 9, 2020. Any organization that allegedly violates this directive will be referred to the Director of Community Standards and Student Ethics for disciplinary review. Jacksonville State University will review this decision prior to September 9, 2020 to determine if an extension is necessary. *This does not include in-person class meetings. Academics will continue as regularly scheduled*

2. Effective immediately, all JSU Housing visitation has been changed to Stage 3. Stage 3 means that visitation is limited to residents of the building only. If you have any questions, please contact your RA!

Please do your part to limit the spread of COVID-19 on campus, so that we can continue to enjoy each other’s company throughout the rest of the academic year. #CockyCares

Jacksonville State is such an important part of our family. When our daughter decided the degree she wanted, she never considered anywhere else. Sam Houston State meant out of state tuition & she said, "I'm not getting stuck in Florida during football season!" Those were the only 3 schools in the country that offered the degree she wanted & she loved it! Once a Gamecock, always a Gamecock! FEAR THE BEAK!!!

As an JSU Alumi I vote we should play Alabama, Auburn, Troy, UAB, South Alabama, Samford, Alabama State, Alabama A&M, UNA and West Alabama. If nothing else no fans and broadcast on TV and the player's wear mask.
