Viewbook stories: Where dreams ignite

You have a lot of freedom to choose your path here. It’s one of the hallmarks that sets JMU apart from other schools. 

The common themes in these stories? JMU students work hard, take intellectual risks and get lots of support from professors. 
JMU students dive in head first, surprise themselves and almost always set new boundaries for where they want to go and who they want to be.

If you are a curious learner, JMU is exactly where your dreams will ignite.
