Reasons to attend and to not attend James Madison University

To Attend

  • “The campus is absolutely beautiful. It’s so crazy to look around and realize you go to college in a place that is this beautiful.”
  • “The academics are really good. I always feel like the professors have their focus on making sure the students have a high-quality learning experience.”
  • “The professor accessibility. You’re able to interact and get all the resources you need.”
  • “It has a relatively low cost for in-state students.” [Total in-state fees are about $23,000.]
  • “The school spirit is unlike anything I’ve seen before.”
  • “Academically it’s great. It’s a work hard, play hard school and everyone tries their hardest.”
  • “Southern hospitality is real down here. Everyone smiles at each other. It’s welcoming when you walk on campus.”
  • “The football games are the highlight of the week.”

To Not Attend

  • “If you’re an academically driven student, it might not be the best place for you. There are lots of students that don’t really care about their academics and sometimes it’s un-motivating. But, if you find your niche here, you’ll be fine.”
  • “If you don’t think a big school is good for you. If you can’t live with 20,000 people on campus, it can be tough.”
  • “Sometimes it can feel overwhelming because the school is big. In my case being out of state, I came in knowing one person. Everyone I spoke to came in with other people from their high school.”
