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!

I love Johnson University! The Tennessee campus professors are so kind and help you with anything that you may need. I am dyslexic, and the school has made getting my education very enjoyable!
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!
