thumbnail for H.T. Sampson LibraryThis is the library on Jackson State University's campus. It allows for JSU's over 8,000+ students to do research, study, and relax in order to get those A's. It is home to Java City which helps the students to perk up after hours of studying while also getting a quick snack as they have baked goods and sandwiches on hand. Named after the first African American to earn a Ph.D.in Nuclear Engineering in the United States, this library stands as quite a dedication to such an accomplished inventor.
