William Jessup University Reviews
William Jessup is a great Christian community as they advertise! They cafe is not as great as advertised. One thing that is upsetting as a student is being told it will cost one amount, but then they raise tuition by $1,500 dollars for each semester the next year. If you are going for a psychology, Bible and Theology, or Business degree attend this school! Other degrees such as the sciences I would not recommend. The reason I recommend the specific degrees is the faculty. Outside of the recommended degrees it is more common to find faculty less helpful and somewhat demeaning people. There are some great faculty in those other departments though. I don’t agree with the forced chapel attendance, forced Bible minor (for new and some transfers), or “Spiritual Life Credits” as it makes Christianity seem like a requirement to attend even though they state to want to reach non-Christians. Overall the school is fantastic, just be sure to do your research and ask around within your major.
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.
