Johnson University Reviews
Rating 3.99 out of 5 285 reviews
While many of the professors are older and struggled in the beginning, they put forth incredible effort to provide not only the basics of learning, but ways to engage the class in creative and fun ways.
If you are a religious student seeking a double major (you take religion based classes so you get an automatic theology degree as well as whatever degree you choose) Johnson is perfect for you. The professors are engaging and willing to work with students in any way they can. JU offers incredible support in academics, disability, and finances. The dorms are huge and beautiful, and the overall campus is small but wonderful. It is a fantastic school.
Johnson University responded to Covid-19 professionally and efficiently by transferring to remote learning. For the Fall 2020 semester, the course material was offered for the most part through a hybrid of online/in-person material as well as an increase of availability of their online classes.
Johnson University fully lives up to their motto of "uncommon community" in every faucet. From caring classmates to friendly professors, this Christian private school is all around spiritually nurturing. The campus is beautiful and homey, and the class material is challenging yet achievable. I would recommend my school to an and every one. Go Royals!
The faculty and staff at Johnson University are so welcoming. They are willing to work with you to help you achieve your goals. They will walk with you through the trials and tribulations you are facing and they are always willing to listen. The campus is tucked away in the rolling hills of Knoxville, TN. The views are gorgeous. I love the dorm rooms! Every dorm room is so spacious, they come with their own private bathrooms, and there are so many ways to organize your furniture.
I really like it here. The professors are very personable and truly care about you, the class sizes are small, and the community is exceptional. The downfall is a lack of diversity, however, it is improving.
The professors have done a good job moving learning online due to COVID, however, it just is not as good as in-person classes.
I would say overall everything is nice. The deans and professors are amazing and so is the campus. They make sure that if you have any problems, that they are taken care of. They are here to listen and to help you.
I like how nice the deans and professors are. They care about you and are considerate. They are kind and willing to listen.
Just after midterms, we had to switch to online only schooling, at first for 4 weeks, then for the remainder of the Spring semester. The professors used our virtual schooling platform as well as Zoom to help the class stay on track. The campus community was as open to assisting their students as possible. All in all, JU stepped up to the plate when we needed them, exactly the way they should have.
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.
I really like the community feel of the entire school. Everyone does a great job on including new students to the campus. Overall, the love that is shown is truly genuine
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.
Such a positive environment. You really get the feeling that you belong and the staff of the university go above and beyond to help you with your college experience.
My experience at Johnson was life changing. The professors truly care about you and the friendships last forever. I learned so much during my time their and miss it every day.
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!
I really like the community of students and professors at Johnson University. We build really good relationships with our professors because almost everyone lives on campus. The professors truly care about the students and want us to succeed.
