Resources for your students


Summer academies

Your students are invited to test drive a major at one of JBU's summer academic camps. The camps offer students a week of college experience and the chance to explore a major in a low-risk environment. Students stay in a residence hall, eat in the dining hall work on engaging projects during the day and enjoy fun outings in the evening.
