Favorite thing about JMU: The people, hands down. JMU is beautifully situated in the Shenandoah Valley, but what makes it so special are its people—the students, staff, and faculty. They all help create an environment that is as supportive and encouraging as it is challenging and fun.

Advice for selecting a college: Of course the strength and diversity of programs offered, location, size, and cost of a school are important factors to consider. I also think a college’s community and support services play a huge role in a student’s overall experience and success. Often, as much learning takes place outside of the classroom as inside, so be sure to visit college campuses to get a better sense of all they have to offer.
