I love my university. The way that everything revolves around people and relationships and Christ makes me want all my friends to come here. The people at Student Life care about Commuter Students, our Campus Pastor Ryan is very approachable and friendly, our President Jackson has the perfect word of encouragement to share during chapel, the list can go on and on. The music here is wonderful: Wednesdays and Fridays I go to chapel in the morning, and the atmosphere here is truly Godly. It's great to be here because people care. You are not just a number or body in a seat here, you are a person, and the faculty does care, and do want to meet you, and help if they can. Another thing, is that our school is well connected with the outside community, the city of Rocklin. There are connections here that will grow and shape our future leaders. The possibilities are endless. I will always be forever grateful for Jessup, and that the Lord led me to come here.
In every course I have taken so far, the professors have been extremely approachable, understanding, and have formulated their course work to be meaningful and worthwhile assignments. The size of classes are pretty small for a college and that helps maintain the feeling of community on campus. Overall, I want to go to class because I feel a mutual respect between myself and professors, and I feel as though every time I go, I get something out of the experience. I wish the classrooms themselves were more cheerful though.
I knew from the first tour I took of the campus that I wanted to attend William Jessup University. That sentiment has not changed; I love my school. All the students are friendly, the professors are welcoming, and the campus is beautiful. WJU is sensitive to the financial needs of the students, and has been very generous and helpful with me. I am learning so much, and there is no better place to get started in life than a place that genuinely wants to help you succeed. Commuting as far as I do is tiring, and my heavy load of classes combined with theatre productions can be a struggle, but I wouldn't trade my experiences. God has blessed this university, and I am honored to be enrolled.
