John Brown University Top Questions

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?


Some of rules that we have make students somewhat feel like they are still in high school. There are things that we should be allowed to do, but the school wants to control what we can and cannot do, even though we are adults and can make our own decisions.


The worst thing about my school is that we are required to have completed homework before our first class. On the first day of class you don't go over the syllabus or anything because it is expected of you to have already looked it over. I am in the accelerated program there, so I can't say that it is the same for the entire campus.


The communication between departments and offices, such as the Business Office and the Financial Aid Office.


The worst thing would be that the professors expect so much out of you for every class your in, therefore your workload is very heavy. This however, in the future is not abad thing because it really does help you learn a lot.


The worst thing is people not being who they really are and being fake, because nobody likes someone who is someone here at school, but a completely different person somewhere else.


It's in a small town without much to do. Also, some of the departments are lacking.


I think the thing that frustrates me the most is the cost. I love JBU, but often find myself worried about money. I would also say, because I came from a larger city/ high school, it has been interesting adjusting to only seeing the same people over and over again.


The only thing I ever complain about is the cafeteria food, and that is only sometimes.


The worst thing about JBU is definitely the cost. I definitely feel that it is worth the cost, but that doesn't change the fact that it is still unaffordable to many of the students. The financial aid does help some but many students don't know if they'll be back the following year simply because of cost. Somehow, though, most students find a way to return.
