What is your overall opinion of this school?

JMU is most certainly the worst college that I have ever set foot in. The campus is dirty and trashy, the academics are terrible and the people are only there to drink alcohol and do drugs. Anyone that wants a good education and opportunities to meet respectable and intelligent individuals should not attend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Most of JMU is pretty awesome. You're going to meet people that you click with, you're going to find classes that you love, and you're going to get most of the resources that you need. The downsides are the huge party culture, huge Greek culture (which contributes to the party culture, hazing gets pretty bad) and the offices on campus like reslife or registrar don't really care about you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I do love my experience at James Madison University. There is a spirit and community here that I have not found or heard of anywhere else. We open doors for each other, professors genuinely care about the students, and all students get a well-rounded education. I am getting experience with research and hands on clinical experience that I would not get anywhere else. As important and impact full that the academic side is, JMU also provides a multitude of extra-curricular activities so there is always something to do on campus. Free movies, amazing concerts, and over 350 clubs and organizations are just some of the awesome things that James Madison University provides to its students. Sports, especially football, get a lot of attention from the campus and there is a certain energy during the football season. Overall, JMU offers a fantastic experience for anyone and everyone, and every student can and does find their niche and place in this fairly large state school.

I enjoy attending James Madison University. I transferred there back in 2017 as a Sophomore and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. There are a lot of different people there who I enjoy spending time with, as well as amazing professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

James Madison University has a feeling of happiness and friendship on the campus that I have never experienced on any other campus. Even people who visit and don't end up attending, most will admit that it has a vibe to it that is open. I believe that the academics and professors meet a higher standard for education and learning.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

This university is beyond amazing. The atmosphere is always so welcoming and inviting. The students and faculty teach you to be engaging with others and to be more outgoing. I was pretty anti-social before I got here, but now I've become more confident in starting conversations with other students I have never met. There are tons of opportunities to be involved on campus. For me, it was the Marching Royal Dukes and the numerous ensembles, clubs, and organizations I chose to be apart of in our wonderful community here in Harrisonburg. I enjoy my professors. You might get an unpredictable professor here and there, but if you take the initiative to overcome the challenges they give you, there is nothing that will stop you from reaching your goals. This is without a doubt the institution I'd rather be and no where else. I hope you think so too for when you're touring and applying.

Teachers and staff are very understanding and use technology often. You can always find your group of people and we have lots of clubs to join that are very opening and inclusive.
