Jacksonville University Reviews
There is no respect for time, money, energy, or ultimately, the students education. $40,000 a year tuition and for what? Productions a local high-school could do better, and knowledge you could find with any simple google/YouTube search. There are better arts programs for half the price in every direction in Florida. Save yourself the debt and depression and choose one of them over this school. I only wish someone had warned me.
Something to be aware of is the significant cost of tuition at JU. They offer scholarships but many students, including myself, have large financial debt because of the decison to attend a private university.
Overall, the campus is beautiful and peaceful. It hugs the curve of the St. John's River and early in the morning you can see wildlife on its banks. It's a nice change of pace for a school in the confines of a city.
