    There are few schools that start class with prayer and asks if you have any prayer requests. The professors truly care about the whole student, not just academics. The facilities are beautiful, well maintained and nestled in a beautiful part of Arkansas. JBU is rated in the top 5 safest college campus' across the US. This should be important to every single student. They have a rich performing arts program and sports teams as well. So many clubs and groups that you are welcome to be involved with. The dining hall experience is HUGE! Great staff at JBU, everyone will quickly become familiar with you and you will be welcomed as a family member.

    I'd say, after speaking with current students, you can't put a price on this school. Yes it is expensive, but they're are many oppurtunities to pay off the tuition including work study programs. If your willing to work a little hard for your education you should be fine.

    It's an expensive school, but the financial aid department helps a lot, and there are a ton of workstudy positions available. For a private school, too, it's not too expensive.
