What Students Are Saying

4.06 Average Rating
Start early on applying for financial aid. JBU is VERY generous with their scholarship fund, you just have to apply sooner rather than later.
Amy from Siloam Springs, AR
ask tons of questions. this is the next four years of your life (mine too, i know, scary)! make sure you are comfortable with the college and that it seems good for you.
Crystal from W. MIDDLESEX, PA
Ask lots and lots of questions and don't be afraid to stay up later than normal and get up at the same time in order to enjoy student dorm life. And relax, God knows what He's doing. :)
Chrissy
Take a college tour to see the whole campus before judging the location. If you get car sick take the less scenic route on your way to the college by staying on the main highway--even if it takes a little longer.
Katelyn from Kansas City, KS
-visit the campus, you haven't experienced the real jbu until you set foot on campus.
-stay in a dorm, it is the best way to get to know students and see what going to jbu will be like.
-visit a class in your future field of study, this is what you life is going to be like for the next four years. do you enjoy what you see / experience? if not, you might want to examine your intended major or school.
-ask any and all questions, the people at jbu are there and ready to help.
-ask god for guidance. jbu is the school for me, but that doesn't mean it is the school for you. god has a plan for your life and he is ready to show you if you ask him. but i do hope that plan brings you to john brown university, because it truly is a wonderful school.
Sarah from Colorado
Come visit. I did not think much of JBU until I visited but it soon became very clear to me that this is the perfect college. As Mr. Donald Soderquist puts it John Brown is one of Arkansas' hidden gems. In addition to business we have top programs in nearly every single major.
Ryan
If you're certain that you want to attend a Christian school, I can't think of a better one to go to. People are so friendly here, and the academics are challenging. Professional experience is built into the majors. If you are interested in a career in engineering, art, or education, come to JBU!
Kiera from Rogers, AR
Come for a campus visit so you can get a feel for the community. The genuine friendliness I experienced on my visit was a big factor in my decision to attend.
Mountain Lover
this is an excellent university and although it is a bit more expensive than some other colleges and universities, it provides not only a top notch education but also knows the students individually and works with each student in whatever they need help in. They take a personal interest in you and try to have you reaching your full potential. In short this is one of top schools for continuing one's education.
