JU is a small school, but that is exactly what I wanted. All of my teachers know me by name, I do not have more than 35 people in my class, and the campus is beautiful. When you look at schools, these minor, but important topics come to mind. I love JU and the atmosphere is so calming. The sporting events are so fun to watch! JU has wonderful faculty that are extremely outgoing. On top of it I have seen the president of our university on many occasions, many people can not say that they have seen their universities president. I hope that many individuals become interested in JU and one day become a part of the dolphin family.
Jacksonville University is in the perfect location, being located right on the river, close to the beach, near a major airport, just outside of the United State's biggest city it can't get any better. The professors here really want to help you in every way they can. Everyone on campus is so friendly!
Going to JU has been great so far, it's a small college so you will always see a framiler face walking around. My favorite experience was going through formal recruitment, since it's so small our whole Greek like knows one another and it's like a big family. Also teachers really want you to succeed, if you aren't in class they will personally email you or text you asking if everything is okay. I would choose to go to JU again!
