What Students Are Saying

5.00 Average Rating
AJU is the perfect university for students who are interested in being treated as a whole person, not in getting lost as just a number. I grew not only educationally, but in character and integrity too as the academic programs all concentrate in ethics and social justice as well. The faculty and staff sincerely care about their students and give them opportunities to shine academically and excel in their extra-curricular internship and school council opportunities. I benefited from the connections students have at Cedars Sinai Hospital, presented research, was President of my Student Body, worked in the school library, graduated with Magna Cum Laude Honors, visited Israel, and thanks to the small class sizes and friendly environment, made friends for life.
