Jacksonville University Reviews
Jacksonville University was a big step in my life, coming here was a difficult decision but over all I was able to adjust well. The food isn't anywhere near the best college food I've had, it's pretty poor on a regular basis actually. There are good people here, very nice and well trained professors, and there are enough seasonal changes to give me what I like!
Jacksonville University has offered a great college experience to me so far. The professors are very responsive to student requests for assistance and will work with you on any issues you may have. There are free tutors in all subjects available on campus so that students can receive extra help where it is needed. There is a family feel to this school that is inclusive and supportive. JU is located close to the Atlantic Ocean, so students have plenty of fun weekend activities in a nearby getaway locale. I am participating in the Aviation program, which is top-notch. I will graduate with a four-year degree that will have me completely prepared for a career as an airline pilot. At the opening-of-school ceremony, all of the incoming freshmen carried candles signifying we should strive to be a "light in the world." I believe I am studying among students who are focusing on their studies, trying to do their best in school, and wanting to make a difference in the world beyond college.
Jacksonville University is a private university with a lot to offer. I have attended Jacksonville University for a year now, and the professors and staff have always made an effort to make me feel welcomed and comfortable. It is a small campus, so you get to know your professors on a personal level, which is something I enjoyed. The classes are challenging, but definitely doable if the work is put in. Although at most times I had a large workload, I knew I could always reach out to my professors for help if needed. The only negative to attending Jacksonville University is the location of the campus. It is located in a very high poverty and crime filled area, so it is not always the safest place to be and there aren't very many activities to do off campus.
