Jackson State University (JSU) will serve as the official venue for the Deepsouth Student Conference 2020. The university’s engineering college will be the main site for the conference. Jackson State is regarded as the  urban university of the state of Mississippi but is also an institution rich in history and tradition, originally founded for the education advancement of African Americans. Jackson State’s ASCE student chapter is eager to host Deepsouth 2020 and build on JSU’s historic mission of empowering diverse students to become leaders.

The concrete canoe competition will be held at LeFleur’s Bluff state park. The park is a “lush green spot in the heart of urban Jackson” located about 7 miles from JSU’s campus.
