John Brown University Reviews
Great college. Professors are very engaged and genuinely care about the students. Very small class sizes, which creates a close-knit environment. The tuition is high, but it is a very good quality education. One complaint is the meal plan. There are currency 3 different meal plan options. They differ in the number of meals per week and amount of DBD's usable in the campus cafe'. However, each meal plan is the same cost! You cannot get a cheaper meal plan until you move out of the regular dorm. The meal plans are expensive. Overall, great college! Definitely recommend.
Proud and thankful to be a JBU grad! A Christ centered and hugely supportive faculty and staff was just what was needed as a middle aged single parent returning to school with small children. I was challenged, educated, and encouraged to become my best over the entire 4 years. An unfortunate mistake occurred by one department and person only upon my graduation (cum laud) that put my name wrong in employment packets and prevented me from being considered for employment, when I and my kids needed it the most. It took over a year for me to find out why my packets were being discarded, as they spelled my name different ways on the different documents sent out from JBU. I forgave and moved on and eventually fixed it all and got a job, but it shouldn't have happened at all. That is my only complaint about the school and entire experience.
The people really do make jbu. The professors work together with students and other faculty to make the most out of our time at the school and there aren’t many colleges out there where the class is small enough for the professor to make dinner for and actually have a real and lasting relationship with their students! Overall, I have loved JBU and my experience there!
