What Students Are Saying

3.66 Average Rating
Be prepared to pay. If you know you will have to pay out for tuition, remember to add the cost of dorms and what goes in them, meal plans, books, parking decal, and just having cash on hand for extra needs during the year. If this is really the school you wish to attend, start saving as soon as possible and look for as many outside scholarships as you can.
Robyn from Jacksonville, FL
Try to join a club if you go here, that way you will be guaranteed to have friends with the same interests as you. The students in your same major you will see all four years and they may not have the same interests as you, just the same career path. Don't take 18 credit hours every semester. The Student Solutions Center at JU specifically told me that I should take a break from doing that because it gets really tiring, really fast.
Stephanie from Jacksonville, FL
Check out the website before you get on campus- you can learn about the different programs, professors, and all of the new opportunities on campus- I found out about the new Marine Science Research Institute where I now study. SO HELPFUL! Also, talk to students on campus when you go to visit, talk to staff and ask them anything and EVERYTHING you want to know.
Rachel from Jacksonville, FL
Do not slack off your freshman year. I came in from taking Honors and AP courses in high school and thought that I knew everything but I didn't and my grades showed for it. Don't be afraid to ask for help, there are so many people around campus who are willing to help with anything - literally. I also advise to get to know your professor, the professor will know who you are for sure but it is important to build some kind of bond.
Lauren from Columbia, SC
Prospective students should look into getting involved around campus in some manner. The campus is small, and networking has outstanding potential. With student involvement, prospective students are sure to excel academically and socially. Take the time to get involved on campus. There are several opportunities for you to make a difference at JU, take advantage while you can.
Chunia from Indianapolis, IN
Apply for the honors program. It may be more work but they offer great scholarships and you are guaranteed to have fun.
Sabrina from Jacksonville , FL
One thing I would stress to a prospective student is that college is not all fun and games. There is a lot of responsibility on your plate. You no longer have your typical high school teacher forcing due dates upon you and asking if you need any help on your projects. Most college professors give you the material and don't see it until the day you turn it in. They are very willing to help though, but you have to be the one to step up and ask. Don't be afraid to ask for help or go to the tutoring room! Be on time and study hard! Good luck!
Meaghan from Jacksonville, FL
Don't slack off. The bad thing about getting to know everyone and always having friends around is that you wont be able to discipline yourself so well. With all the stuff going on that seems so much fun. You will need to make some sacrifices and stay in your dorm that night rather then go out and have fun sometimes
Karla from Jacksonville, FL
If your planning to come to JU make sure you have looked at all your options and know that this is the place for you.
Ariel from Miami Gardens, FL
