Why I chose to attend JMU: The positive reputation JMU has was something I had grown up knowing about and knew early on that this was the place I wanted to be. The people are wonderful anywhere you go on campus and the energy and atmosphere is unlike any other place I have been. JMU is very unique and once you experience it, you will feel at home.
