What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love JMU and can not see myself anywhere else. Everyone is super nice here and welcoming. There is just a different feel when you walk around campus. Everyone is enjoying their time here and I have never heard of someone who doesn’t love it here. Overall JMU is by far the best college in my opinion.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It’s beautiful place that I’ll be glad to spend my next four years at. Some of the answers in the survey were based off things I’ve heard or already know. I also believe I will have a great time at the university and meet many great people along the way while being at JMU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

People were very friendly during our visit! It felt like a home away from home. The dorms are comfortable and since I am in the honors college I know where I’ll be going. I enjoyed my visit to the Honors College and feel it will be a great place for me to study and relax between classes. The visit to Hillcrest House really made my mom feel better about JMU!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was accepted into the class of 2023 and I have to say, I have never been more excited to go to a school in my entire life. Every time I step foot on that campus people are always greeting me with smiles, holding the door, and providing very useful information. The professors I have met were very knowledgeable in their field of study and were able to give me tips and tricks for high school as well! The campus itself is so beautiful! JMU is simply one of a kind and I can not wait to become apart of such a big welcoming family! Go Dukes!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

James Madison University is a very well rounded school , with great academic programs, including a very prestigious business school. The sports at JMU are on the rise, as the football team has recently won national titles, and other sports teams such as soccer compete at a high level with outstanding results. The food at JMU is outstanding, rated by many sites as top 10 in the entire country. The facilities which include the university recreational center seems brand new and is full of activities for students, from weight rooms, to basketball courts, to rock climbing and even swimming, JMU's campus is beautiful and large, but with the great bus system it makes it easy to get around. Greek life is encouraged but is not a huge thing on campus. There is a sorority row, but no frat row. The campus is safe, and the dorms are secure, only allowing entrance to those who live there and any guests they have. The professors at JMU by the most part are easy to reach and are great at teaching classes, but of course with any school there are exceptions. JMU is constantly expanding, from new dorms, to a large extension of the school of business, and a new convocation center. All in all JMU is a great school and is growing rapidly.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

James Madison University is a great school they really do what they can to help their student succeed here, so they will go on to have great careers. The only thing I would want as a current student is more parking options closer to campus for students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

My years at James Madison University we full of wonderful opportunities. Conference presentations, study abroad, and a semester in DC were just some of my highlights. There are ample resources that are available to all students. The Health Center, Career and Academic Planning Office, Study Abroad Office, Writing Center, Math Center, and Counseling Center are just some of the resources I used in my four years there. The people there want you to succeed, which creates a welcoming and enriching environment. You never have to look far to find the help you need while on campus. I met incredible professors, staff, and other students while at JMU. It is an experience that one should not pass up on. If given the chance to attend JMU, do it!! You will not regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

James Madison University has a friendly atmosphere, and EVERYONE will hold the door for you. There are plenty of diverse food options! I lived on campus my first year and highly recommend the Skyline dorms. If you're like me and aren't a big partier, it can be difficult to find activities. However, there are beautiful hikes around the area!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While JMU is no Ivy League or anywhere near, you can definitely find some good conversation if you look for it. The Honors College is a great place to start, as Honors kids play hard, but work harder. Everyone is pretty friendly, if not super friendly, and you can meet so many good people. Some dorm halls are terrible, but others are amazing, its just a "you got lucky" situation if you got a good dorm but tbh, no matter where you live, you end up loving it because of the people. The food is so good, not like home, but it is nothing to complain about whereas other colleges get like middle school cafeteria food. Lastly, the campus is so pretty and once you get used to it and walk it a few times, it becomes smaller than it seems.
