My Advice to High School Students: As a first generation college student the college search process was a bit daunting! In order to evaluate my choices, I developed a list of questions to help me narrow in on the schools that fit my definition of an ideal university. I decided staying in state was the best fit for my life and signed up for tours all across Virginia. After touring and getting an authentic feel for James Madison’s campus, I was blown away by the welcoming feel and beauty of JMU. The students seemed friendly and invested in their community, and four years later I could say that my first impression was spot on!

Advice to students selecting a college: Once you have narrowed down your choices based upon elements such as location, size, academic opportunities, student involvement culture, and financial capabilities, it is ESSENTIAL TO VISIT. Some students describe a college visit as the “deciding factor” when choosing a school; even if this is not the case for you, gaining a better understanding of a campus culture can guide you towards the right fit for you! 


Class at JMU: Race, Class, and Justice

JMU Memory: Before my sophomore year, I came back to campus early to volunteer as a First-year Orientation Guide or “FrOG”. Having the opportunity to serve new students and share my love and passion for JMU with a whole new generation of Dukes was such an incredible opportunity that brought me wonderful friendships and the opportunity to grow as a leader.
