What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
john brown university is a fantastic school filled with wonderful people and opportunities. there is an overwhelming sense of community when you get to campus. people just genuinely care for each other and love jesus, and you experience this love in every dorm, class, and office you visit.
Sarah from Colorado
The atmosphere is inviting as the incoming and current students welcoming each new member and student as a part of the new family of John Brown University. Although it is more from one's budget it is worth it from not only the strong Christian foundation but also to a modern campus that provides a home like environment with an individualized system in matching roommates and events that include all students. the most important factor would have to be the interest that each professor has for each student to succeed to their full potential and striving to live out the Christian faith as an example for others.
