Johnson University Reviews
Amazing community, even as a socially anxious person I had easily found friends. Class size is kept small, with some only having 10 students or as big as 40, but that is generally just for the freshman level courses. Professors are all friendly, flexible and understandable. Great Christian Atmosphere!
It's my first year attending Johnson and I'd have to say my experience has been good overall. If you are looking for a good Christian education, Johnson is the place for you. The professors are very friendly and have a passion for the material. The campus community is very tight-knit. I feel like I've met some of my best friends for life at JU. The only bad side of it all is that being surrounded by a bunch of people who are like-minded can start to feel a little boring. Other than that, Johnson University is a great school!
Johnson University is a fine place to go to college. Relative to other private/Christian Universities, Johnson's academics seem to hold up well within most departments. The mandatory Bible core has unexpectedly turned out to be one of my favorite things about this institution. Also, the dorm rooms are indeed really really nice. All of the professors have been extremely cooperative and approachable. In general, because the campus is so small, all of the faculty and staff seem genuinely invested in each student's well-being, and would do anything for their beneficence.
