2 College Freshman

Party Scene: There's not really a party scene instead just hanging out with friends and doing stuff on our own.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Not really a thing but finding a good groups of friends makes it more fun

5 College Freshman

Academics: Professors are so helpful and caring so long as you put in the effort

4 College Freshman

Diversity: There's a handful of diversity on people but everyone is welcoming

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe at my school. Its on the smaller side and we have round the clock Campus Security. They drive around, have guards in the main buildings to just watch over along with cameras. I don't have a fear of sexual assault at JBU.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: These professors are so passionate and experienced in their field. It is incredible to just hear them speak in class because their knowledge on these subjects is astounding. I'm excited to learn more and granted, I don't particularly like some of the professors, but every college has that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: As an Illustration major it is already difficult to find jobs, but the Career Development Center is so helpful and really genuinely want to help people. They know how to get you started and on your way with your major.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Walker Residence and its heavenly. So spacious and there aren't a ton of people on our hall. I'm located right in the center of campus and some of my classes are even in my building, so it makes it very convenient for me. The California Cafe is also in Walker and that makes me very happy.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: I am an Illustration major and sports aren't really my thing, but my roommate is a soccer player on the Varsity team and she always has so much to tell when she comes back from a game. Also, you can't miss the AMAZING toilet paper game we have for our first home basketball game every year. Its on ESPN. We're cool like that.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I've loved the experiences I've gotten to have here at JBU. From being in Cinematography major's films to visiting art galleries right in the school every month or so. It's incredible to experience so much at this school and all of the people they bring in to chapel is phenomenal. Lecrae even spoke to us in chapel and JBU has great connections. JBU doesn't have one bad major, they have stronger majors and good majors, but not a bad major. I feel very blessed to go here and I know this is the right school for me.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: The sports teams are pretty good, but games are not extremely well attended unless it's an important game, or a special event like the TP game.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The teachers genuinely care and want to help you, the school is small enough that you get to know most people, but large enough that you can get lost in the crowd if you need to, great events/speakers come all year, and the community on campus is awesome.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There are a few stories of sexual assault, but nothing that I have heard of happening to a friend or even a friend of a friend. There are awareness and safety measures, but Siloam is generally a safe town and the campus is in it's own bubble so I generally feel safe. They do make sure everyone knows who to contact in the case of sexual assault and there is security that drives around campus.

Campus Housing: Basically...

Mayfield: girls dorm, great community life, communal bathrooms, building old and needs to be renovated/ torn down. Close to most buildings

J. Alvin: boys dorm: great community life, building high quality, great layout that encourages interaction, I hear they have a climbing wall in the basement, close to everything, long legacy of awesomeness

Walker: Very new and high quality, closets have no doors?!?, easy access to all of campus and same building as Cali, mail, student center, etc. less rowdy community, suite style bathrooms

Hutch: chill community life, people friendly but stereotyped as introverted, nicest rooms, furthest from most things on campus (to get to the cathedral takes 8 minutes), athletes like to room here, suite and communal bathroom options, nice lounge areas.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: While our varsity sports are not necessarily all winning teams, we do have good coaches and players who put in a lot of effort and heart. Soccer is the most popular and well attended sport, followed by volleyball and basketball. There unfortunately is no football or baseball :( Intramurals are easy to join and fun to do, so staying active is not an issue if you are intentional. The workout facilities are not the greatest but there are plans to renovate those I believe. There is a big field and a easy access path to exercise on as well.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: not a lot of enthusiam

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Crime rate is low. I feel safe leaving my laptop and back pack in the library if I need to run to the caf for lunch. I have never had any issues.
