What's it like to be a JBU student?
My friend from a state school said, ‘You know everyone! When I walk across my campus, I don't see recognizable faces.’ At JBU I've been able to form deeper, more intimate relationships. I know so many people.

The JBU experience
"Owning a hammock at JBU is almost as important as textbooks. Where else are you going to do your homework, take an afternoon nap, or hang with your friends?"
“My friends and I love to walk to downtown Siloam and grab our favorite coffee at Pour Jon's. It's one of my favorite places to hang out.”
“My college roommate has become my best friend. I know I'm building a friendship that will last long after I graduate from JBU.”
"What's fun about being part of the Cathedral Choir is that it's made up of students from every major, and I've become best friends with people I probably wouldn't have met otherwise."
“Every week we get together, drink coffee, eat dinner, and we study the Word together. I've learned so much and I'm so thankful for this kind of community in my life.”
“It's awesome to know that JBU recognizes the stress that we're under, and gives an opportunity for us to just relax and have a fun time before finals begin.”
“After a long day of classes, my friends and I love to hit the gym. Working out together is such a great way to unwind and connect. We leave feeling awesome and positive.”
"Worshiping God with my fellow students is amazing. The teaching not only helps me dive into the scriptures, but it also helps me apply them to my world and the world around me."
Our interdenominational culture offers a beautiful and unique opportunity for students to broaden their understanding of Christ and fosters a safe place for students to ask hard questions, seek truth and grow in love and commitment to Jesus.
