I love my professors they're entertaining and they care about students. Being in honors and nursing gave me an in with a lot of different people so I have made a whole bunch of new friends. The campus is gorgeous it does not even look like Jacksonville here and it's small enough to walk across in ten minutes but big enough that you have plenty of places to go and hang out without even having to leave campus.» Read More

JU is a great campus for an atmosphere of studying. There are plenty of benches in the gardens and even a spot down at the river that students can peacefully study at. The campus also has plenty of things to do if you are a student with free time. There is a campus theatre, gym for working out, gymnasium for playing sports, basketball courts, swimming pool, baseball/softball field, volleyball nets, an art museum, music lounge, and a football field. There are clubs and groups that students can join for extra fun as well. For example, the Rowing Team and the Inner Varsity Bible Study group. Not only this, but JU also of course has concerts, game days, musicals and plays that JU students can attend for free. It's a wonderful active campus that students will never get bored at.» Read More
