I absolutely love William Jessup University! I love the Christ-centered education and atmosphere. The professors here genuinely care about the success of their students and they make sure to keep their doors and hearts open for their students. The environment in general is just welcoming and when you walk on campus, the people there make sure to make you feel like you already belong.

Jessup is absolutely wonderful! It is in a great area with many different things to do on and off campus. The professors love to teach and are very good! The class sizes are relatively small, so the learning experience is that much greater. Other students are very friendly and friends are always around! Finally, they offer great degree programs and are continuously adding more.
The professors to start with, actually care about you as people and more importantly your walk with Christ. They also pour into you academically. The community is smaller for a college so you get to know everyone at least a little bit and quite a bit of people very well! It honestly felt like a new family for me as soon as I got there!
