Seeing the JMU campus for yourself is an experience that stays with you. You will see the beauty. And feel the friendliness. And breathe in the peace. You owe it to yourself to give this place a look. Once you come here, you’ll see what we mean.

#JMU25 Scavenger Hunt (Opening Soon)

In addition to daily visit operations, the Office of Admissions is hosting a #JMU25 Scavenger Hunt for admitted students. We encourage you to come to campus for this unique way to explore the beauty and spirit of JMU. 

We hope to begin allowing admitted students and families to participate in this event soon, and registration will open after March 15. All on-campus events and activities are subject to change based on COVID-19 guidelines.

When open, registration will be available on this page.

Can't Visit In-Person?

If you are unable to travel to see us, we will bring the #JMU25 Scavenger Hunt to you! It is available on JMYou now!

What should I expect?

This fun and simple scavenger hunt has been created to show you JMU’s campus and the special landmarks that you will come to know as a student.

In order to make this as safe as possible for all visitors, students will select a date and arrival time on the registration form and should plan to arrive at Madison Hall at the selected time. Date options will begin after March 15 and run through May 1.

Once you arrive on campus, all you need to do is check in to receive a welcome packet and download the Guidebook app to find the scavenger hunt directions.
