University of Jamestown is a unique college with absolutely amazing and smart staff that will teach you and give you all you need for your journey to success! My major was computer science and I have only positive feedback to leave in here. Professors are helpful and smart, athletics are wonderful. I played soccer in here and we had almost all international students in my soccer team, from all around the world including Russia, Germany, England, Australia, D.R. Congo, Mexico, Brazil and etc... Housing is the best with big variety of choices.

Jamestown is a cozy neighbor hood type of town. The people are very friendly and are willing to lend each other a helping hand. There isn't too much to do in the town for entertainment, but the new movie theatre is great!
On campus there are plenty of events that are offered to the student body through out the semester. The college genuinely cares about their students and the faculty do a wonderful job at helping their students on an individual level.

More Girls Than Guys – There are more girls at Jamestown than guys, but that's just what happens at private schools, but it's not really that noticeable. Most of the students come from around the midwest area, but there are plenty of other students from places like Alaska, Hawaii, Arizona, etc. There are also plenty of foreign students, especially Korean students. Most of the guys soccer team is from various contries, mostly england and belgium. Their accents are amazing! The people here are just great all around!
