    JBU is an great place to be at for college! Not only are the facilities top notch, the people are very inviting and welcoming. JBU has built three brand new buildings since I have been a student here with top of the line class rooms and technologies. The other buildings also have great learning environments for the many majors offered. The community that is present on this campus also makes it such a great place to take classes. Each of the dorms on campus has special traditions and characteristics that make great environments for students. There is always a fun activity happening on the weekends or on weeknights including Varsity Athletics, concerts, mini golf, or dances! I truly love being here and I wouldn't choose to go anywhere else.

    I have really enjoyed being at John Brown! I was worried that I wasn't going to be able to make a close group of friends or get involved on campus. However within the first week of my freshman year I made friends that I still have to this day! New and transfer student orientation helps students to get involved right from the start which really helped. There are many student ministries and clubs that students can easily get involved in. JBU does really well at fostering community!

    JBU is amazing. We have something going on all the time from concerts to late-skates to athletic games to cultural lunches. Who else has a Toilet Paper basketball game? We also have amazing people that make ordinary life awesome. And I actually enjoy going to class.
