JMU is quite honestly an amazing place year round. The campus, food, dorms, classes, professors, and social life are excellent. It can be a party school, but us students know how and when to get things done. Go Dukes! There are numerous opportunities to get involved with clubs, groups, and research with professors. The faculty truly care about their students and often go out of their way to help. Students often interact with professors outside of class. Great school!
