We Asked Students, What's your overall opinion of this school?

Alisa

Great school! Small environment for growing together with other students, and the professors and staff are very nice and always available for school help, theological discussions, or just hanging out with students. The campus is beautiful and the academics are challenging, but students are encouraged to rest and also try new things.

Andrew

John Brown is unique among Christian schools for its total commitment to open-minded discussion on campus about even the most difficult and controversial topics. The school is big enough to have real connections and opportunities for its students, and small enough for students to really engage with the professors and staff. As the guy who convinced me to go to JBU told me, you get out of this school what you put into it. I love John Brown.

Rebecca

JBU is a wonderful place. Downtown Siloam is amazing and has a lot of little shops, coffee shops to study or just hang out with friends. Campus is beautiful year round and the students and professors are all friendly. The class sizes are great, they are small so you can actually get to know the professors and they can get to know you. JBU truly feels like home.

Lea

John Brown University provides a quality education. Not only does JBU provide academically rigorous courses, but they also hire amazing staff that truly loves to teach and engage with students. JBU is the perfect place to grow in your relationship with Christ and in your relationship with others.

Robin

JBU is such a welcoming environment, with many friendly people to be found. John Brown has a thriving student life, with many group activities to be found all over the place. The teachers, faculty, and staff really and truly care about their students, and we aren't just a number to them.

Rachel

John Brown University is a great school. I loved the atmosphere and felt that the academic rigor was above average. The students and faculty are very welcoming, and the professors do their best to be available to students. I would highly recommend JBU to anyone looking for a school where they can feel at home.

Moriah

John Brown University has been an incredible blessing to me. The teachers are readily accessible for my multiple questions and most of the classes are engaging and thought-provoking. I have really appreciated all that I have learned, both inside and outside the classroom. The classes are challenging enough to keep me working hard, but they leave me enough time to work two jobs (to help pay for college) as well as hang out with friends and be involved in extra-curricular activities. Overall, I have loved JBU and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

Priscilla

John Brown is a fantastic school for people of all backgrounds. They are a private Christian school that requires 2 bible courses to be taken by all students, but even those who are not Christians love the campus. The professors are very approachable and are seen eating lunch or dinner with students in the cafeteria all the time! It is a very safe environment full of friendly faces, usually painted up for the Basketball and soccer games. It is the best place to call your second home.

Kendra

I enjoy John Brown a lot. There is so much to do on campus, the facilities are beautiful, the people are intentional and open. I think that anybody who goes here will find some way to enjoy it. Northwest Arkansas is gorgeous during every season and everyone here is very relaxed and easy-going. Not only so, but since it is a Christian college, I feel that the students and faculty really encourage each other in their walks with the Lord. There is a constant presence of community and spirit. Really enjoy it her and I think you would too :)

Faith

JBU is a wonderful school where teachers do not look at you as a number but as a person, dedicated to building you up academically and spiritually. Everyone is willing to help you both academically and in your daily life with stress or other obstacles. Everything that happens on the campus is so that us students feel more welcome whether they are new students or seniors. We put our relationships with God and people above all because we know that when we are following God every step of the way, everything else will fall into place.

Amber

John Brown University has shown to be a very valuable experience. They provide excellent student academics and chances to grow. The community is the most talked about here on campus, but the community is strong here. The only downside of the campus is the food they provide, but even though the food is not great, meeting with friends in the cafeteria is a high light.

Karen

John Brown University is a very exceptional school. Not only does JBU challenge you in the classroom . They shake you to the very core on an academic and spiritual level. They provide and environment where you can learn and broaden your world view. You experience both a Secular and Christian World view which help shape your opinions and thoughts.

Olivia

It's a good ole' christian college for the good ole' christian. It's a private university so the tuition is through the roof, but hey, it means smaller class sizes and more specialized teaching! You'll sure feel special, anyway. The campus is beautiful, and the facilities are nice, too.

Stephanie

I absolutely love John Brown University! Everyone is super helpful and kind, and everyone genuinely cares about you as a person, not just a student. The facilities are wonderful, and the classes are really good. There are plenty of opportunities to socialize and connect with other people. All the professors are amazing, and really care for their students.

Marinda

I visited in November of last and I felt welcomed the moment I parked near the office. My counselor had been in regular contact with me and advised better than my high school counselors. The campus is beautiful and filled with people who are ready to communicate.

Luke

JBU is an awesome place. Located on a beautiful, yet intimately sized campus in Siloam Springs, it has become my home away from home. While its academics are rigorous and standards are high, this school truly focuses on the whole person with classes that involve the students mind, body, and heart, professors who want to know their students, and an education that will give the student opportunities.

Amelia

John Brown University is a wonderful place to grow spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. The professors are caring and available, the classes are engaging, and thought-provoking, and the people are accepting and laid back. JBU is extremely welcoming.

Kelsy

John Brown University is an awesome university. They really make you feel welcome and they pass so much love, joy, and peace to everyone. This university provides so many learning opportunities and the professors have so much experience. Thus university also have hands on-teachings which prepares you for a future job. This is an amazing college!

Christi

I love John Brown University! It is an amazing school with a vast mix of cultures and backgrounds. John Brown has recently started a nursing program, which I am in and I am so excited to be a part of this unique colleges history. Going to John Brown is family tradition.

Janae

It's a nice place. Don't expect too much authenticity from everyone, but know that relationships are worth investing in here. Once Mayfield gets renovated (2017) it should have some nice dorm facilities for both men and women, but very few off-campus options are provided.

Lydia-Joy

John Brown University is a place that is a home away from home. Friends are always there for you to help you feel at home. The campus is great! The gym is accessible almost all the time, which is great! The food is great, but like every other school, it can get a bit boring, but every week there is a meal that is different!

Seth

John Brown University has a very nice campus, nice people, and an excellent engineering program. The campus itself is small compared to other campuses, but it makes the facilities more accessible to students. The staff are very nice people who help others when problems arise. The engineering program has some very excellent professors that will not give up on you if you need assistance. Overall, this university is pretty great.

Kathryn

The cafeteria was typical food, but there were a good variety of options. The school has solid academics and the professors prioritize the students' learning experience. I was a student-athlete and could've had difficulty with a STEM major while traveling for games, but the professors and other students were always willing to help me get notes and catch up on information. I made some of the best friends of my life there.

Austin

It is a good school. There isn't really much to do other than school, and it is a small school. The community is really nice, but if your wanting the college experience then JBU is not the school for you. I think it would be a good school if there is less rules, and more things to do on campus and in the community.

Ana

Beautiful campus, nice facilities, and good food in the cafeteria. The students in the honors program showed that they are dedicated to getting the most out of their education, and their professors are people I would enjoy getting together with even outside of classes to discuss books or events or things that I've been processing.

Jessica

John Brown University excels in its academic pursuits and cares if their students are truly learning the material presented to them. They receive high marks not only in the formal classroom, but also in the true classroom of life, the real world. JBU offers multiple ways for students to apply their knowledge in the city of Siloam Springs around them, as well as in their community with their fellow students on campus.

Laniese

The best part of JBU is easily the people. Students and staff alike genuinely care about you in the classroom and beyond. It is very easy to make friends because people are so approachable. The small class size allows you to get to know your classmates better. Plus, you aren't fighting hundreds and hundreds of other students for your professor's office hours. Classes will definitely push you academically, especially if you choose to be in the honors program. The only downsides are 1) if you're into party culture, you will struggle to find it here 2) food is not always the greatest, but sharing a meal with friends makes it better and 3) it's in a small town so there are not tons of shops/restaurants but there are 4 fairly large cities within a 40-minute drive that have just about everything.
