Johnson University Reviews
This was my first year attending JU, and I loved every minute of it. It is truly and uncommon community, filled with so many exceptional people and professors! If you're looking to get a great Christian education this is the place for you! Everyone here majors in their major of choice, along with Bible and Theology (so you double major), so keep that in mind before applying. You will have to take over 30 hours of Bible courses, so just a heads up is that's not really your thing. It's also BEAUTIFUL! We're about 25 minutes away from downtown knox and about 35-45 from the Gatlinburg, Sevierville area. Work study jobs are available in just about any department you can think of, and my employer works really well with my school schedule. Not to mention the great dorms. You get your own bathroom, sink, and shower and one roommate. They're super spacious too.
Due to the unique circumstances most schools were in over the past few months, Johnson moved to an online format. Resulting, in having to take my classes this semester online. Though, classes did not go as planned the students, faculty, and staff did a wonderful job adjusting and made the most out of the situation. My professors did an excellent job with continuing education to the best way for each student. Overall, I was personally happy even with the circumstances. I will have my first official online course this summer.
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!
