There is no other college that I would want to go to. The environment here is fantastic! All of the teachers are completely invested in their work and in their students. Sometimes I wish there was more student activity and involvement, but there are still many activities to attend to. Chapel services and the spiritual connection is great.
Review John Brown University
A rigorous, yet fun, university that is constantly improving majors, campus, and education. The professors are the greatest asset to this university; they are professional, highly qualified, and genuinely concerned with their students' success.
It is an investment, but staffed with people dedicated to ensuring finances do not limit a student or their experience.
A beautiful campus with plenty of amenities but still small enough to feel easily accessible. Located in a prosperous area of Arkansas, in a small town with great people.
John Brown is unique among Christian schools for its total commitment to open-minded discussion on campus about even the most difficult and controversial topics. The school is big enough to have real connections and opportunities for its students, and small enough for students to really engage with the professors and staff. As the guy who convinced me to go to JBU told me, you get out of this school what you put into it. I love John Brown.
