Our unique home in the Shenandoah Valley
Mountains, farmland, the wide sky full of stars are what make the Shenandoah Valley, and JMU's home in it, so unique and so beautiful.
There are ski slopes, trails for biking, rivers for fishing, forests for camping -- on any given evening you can choose between home-cooked southern-fried chicken, an edgy coffee shop, live music in a bar or ethnic cuisine. Throw out the stereotypes and choose between country roads or downtown nightlife, farmers' markets or vintage thrift shops, live Shakespeare or live jazz.
What's cool in and around the 'Burg? The great outdoors, a piece of history, high art and plenty of fun destinations downtown and around Harrisonburg — it's all here. While you're arranging your schedule, be sure to save plenty of time for your visit to James Madison University. The heart of our institution is our students - more than 17,000 strong. Sporting purple and gold most days, they drive the activity of our vibrant campus.
Visitors are always welcome at JMU!
