JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

Jackson State University is opening the door to visitors with a new welcome center. A ribbon cutting ceremony was Monday morning on campus.

The university spent a little more than $40,000 renovating the old University Market to make way for facility.

A number of faculty and supporters were on hand for the occasion.

Videos about the university and information about the city of Jackson will be available to visitors, prospective students, and their parents.

"When contemplating coming here, not only the educational experiences are important but the location. And the city of Jackson has a lot to offer," says JSU President Dr. Carolyn Meyers.

The welcome center is located on Dalton Street, just north of John R. Lynch Street.
