No matter where you give, your support is why the Madison Experience endures: All together. Engaged students. Welcoming community. Beautiful campus. People holding doors. That feeling you experienced when you first stepped on campus. It’s all still here, because of you. You sustain the environment that makes the following accomplishments and stories from the 2020-2021 academic year possible.


Researching Heart Disease

JMU’s inaugural Beckman Scholar Isabel Romov (’22) is working with the guidance of chemistry professor Nathan Wright to research ways to treat arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy, an inherited heart disease.


Celebrating Lucy Simms

This project, an award-winning collaboration between African, African American, and Diaspora (AAAD) Studies Center students, faculty and community partners, tells the story of African American education in Harrisonburg in a permanent exhibit at Harrisonburg High School.

Designing New Solutions

JMU engineering students designed a buoy in hopes of providing low-cost solutions for environmental evaluation. When deployed with sensors, the buoy could help monitor the health of the Chesapeake Bay and potentially aid efforts to track the migration of leatherback sea turtles in Florida.

Rallying the Power

The Women for Madison 2021 Summit was definitely amazing and inspiring. Experience some of the magic from that May weekend: Hear from volunteers and students about the impact of scholarships on their Madison Experience.
