I thoroughly loved going to school at UJ. The small campus and close-knit community made for the best college experience. The relationships you make will last forever because when you’re around people who want to be successful empowers you to want to be successful too. I am still very close with those I met from UJ and know it’s a relationship for life. UJ was a big chapter in the career I have now and that I will forever be grateful for. Your professors strongly encourage you to better yourself in all aspects of your life: mentally, physically, and spiritually. You’re cared for and supported by everyone which allows you to take risks and grow. That’s part of the Jamestown and Midwest culture which I absolutely love and miss. Luckily, I was adopted by 3 families because I couldn’t go home for the holidays. They took me in whenever I needed a home. UJ will forever hold a special place in my heart! Go Jimmies!

University of Jamestown is a great fit for me! Its small campus makes me feel like a part of the community, and I love that people know my name. The nursing program is a well-oiled machine that definitely prepares me well for the real world.
University of Jamestown is worth every penny you will pay. Yes, it seems expensive, but this school is worth the investment of your future. This campus is the perfect size. The fact that this campus is so small allows you to personally get to know other students and to form life-long relationships with friends and professors. People know your name. You are not an ID number, you are a person that matters. One night as I was eating in the cafeteria with my friends, one of my professors sat down and ate supper with my friends and me. Not only does the size of this campus allow you to form life-long relationships, it also offers many different opportunities for you to become involved in activities and organizations . Whether you are into sports, music, art, or gaming, there is truly something for everyone. From the moment you visit the University of Jamestown for the first time, you will realize that there is truly something special about this place.
