I am a freshman at Judson University. So far I love everything about it. Everyone throughout the whole process of registering and moving in has been so friendly and helpful. The campus is small and easy to navigate. I feel very safe and have made a lot of friends already. I love starting my day with chapel and getting inspired by the people around me. I'm looking forward to 4 special years at this University!

Judson University was always my dream college and it happened. I love all the faculties and teachers there, I get along with them really well, they are teachers that I can talk to whenever I need it. Also the students there are amazing, I haven't made this many friends ever and that is what this school is about, just changing the world with shaping ourselves with others. Also being involved in this school is another thing that works around with me. I can be involved in so many things just so I can get the student life more in a bigger spectrum.
I am currently a student at Judson University and I have to say that it is a great school. The school is known for its strong sense of community and it definitely fulfills that. I am currently not a resident student, I am a commuter, therefore getting that sense of community is harder for students such as myself. Everyone in the school seems to know each other and respect each other. I completely admire that!

What I do not like about my school is that most of us commuter students fee,l in a way, under appreciated. There are some events that help us get to know our fellow commuters, but not other events that are meant to encourage unity between resident and commuter students. It seems as if we are invisible. I feel like the school could do a better job in assisting commuter students and making them feel like Judson is meant to be a second home.
