Judson University Reviews
Judson University is a great school if you care about a close knit community, ample chances for spiritual development, and caring faculty and staff. The university cares about the students from a holistic perspective, with a counseling center for emotional health, challenging classes for academic development, and chapel for spiritual enrichment. There are multiple ways for students to be involved in leadership, including resident life, student government, university ministry, and student organizations.
I like Judson University's moral code because it creates a peaceful environment. This is my first year at JudsonU and so far it's a bit refreshing walking into the big glass doors to the school. The curriculum is put together in a way that Judson isn't just school it's an experience. And the staff/ faculty members are very friendly. When I need someone to talk too they are always willing to give an ear and I do not think they understand exactly how helpful they are to me. I have not eaten any food at JudsonU's cafeteria but there is a Subway here and the environment is really clean.
After my small time with Judson, I have come to realize how amazing the atmosphere truly is. The people are very close knit and the support is spectacular. For people who love this environment I would highly recommend Judson university.
