John Brown University Reviews
I am a 2nd semester freshman at Johns Brown University, and I have loved it so far! It has a beautiful campus and is located in the little town of Siloam Springs. I know that it is a very cliche thing to say, but community is definitely one of my favorite things about John Brown. John Brown has been expanding its programs, and has a high academic expectation, keeping to a good level of challenging while not being too hard. It has met and exceeded my expectations of good academics, engaging student life, helpful professors, and good friends.
I am loving John Brown so far! I am currently a sophomore photography major. Transitioning to college is hard, but John Brown has made it much easier for me. The community of students and faculty is amazing! Everyone is so nice! The professors are so helpful and always willing to sit down and talk if you ever need anything. They genuinely want to get to know you as a person. Campus is so beautiful! It is a great size because its not too big to where you feel lost, but its big enough that I feel like I can always have the opportunity to meet new people
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.
