John Brown University is a spectacular college. Especially if you are looking to major in the arts or engineering, as those programs are some of the best here. No matter what program you pursue, though, the professors are incredibly approachable and helpful.

It's true; the caf food isn't entirely pleasant but they have a great sandwich station and salad bar. Plus, there's a cafe/grill in the student center if you get tired of the same ol' same ol'.

The classes are tough but doable. Expect to be challenged and even a little overwhelmed at times. But you come out of it with a great understanding of the material.

Going to a private Christian university, I was a little concerned about fitting in, as I don't "fit the mold." My family is not wealthy and I'm a little rough around the edges at first sight (with all my tattoos). But I have never felt more accepted than I do here. The majority of the students are friendly and the line between rich and poor just doesn't seem to exist. I have attended and visited other private Christian colleges and let me tell you, this is not the case everywhere. JBU is really something special.This IS Christian university. Alcohol and such are strictly prohibited on campus. So if you're looking for a party school, you're looking in the wrong place. We do, however, have plenty of fun.

JBU is a good school, but like every other school it has its negatives. Lets start off with the positives. JBU has great academics, and is ranked number one in the southern region. For the most part, you will be challenged. There are no easy A's or B's. You must earn your grade. Everyone is friendly which makes it easy for everyone to make friends. As for the professors, there are some that i like, and some that i do not like. The dorms are extremely nice. The campus is small but nice.

Negatives: Siloam Springs, Arkansas is really boring. There is nothing to do. I am being completely honest. The town has like 15000 people. The downtown is only one block long. Everyone hangs out in Fayetville, which is 30 minutes away from JBU. Also, University of Arkansas is located there. If you go to JBU make sure you have a car!! The food sucks really bad here. Its inedible sometimes.

Overall:: JBU is a good school, i would recommend for anyone to come here but expect to work hard. Do not expect a party school.JB

The faculty really shines at this university. JBU is extremely particular about the faculty they hire, and students receive top-notch professors. The professors are also involved in the industry in which they teach. Administration (especially the business office) is sticky sometimes--that would be the worst part of JBU.

Students are required to live on campus until roughly their senior year, which creates grumbling juniors. It really does make things difficult, but that is the only other complaint I have for the campus.Otherwise, facilities and grounds are always kept spotless, faculty/classes are amazing, and they really do try to help you receive all the financial aid you are eligible for.
