I just don't likeBrightCommunications
I just don't like it here much. Trying to skate by having the 'normal college experience', but it's so dull. Would not recommend unless you're into fratty rich kids.

Question
JMU is simply not right for me, asBrightSociology
JMU is simply not right for me, as the things I need from my education is not provided at JMU. I am introverted; I need smaller classes. I chose JMU for the vast opportunities to grow. Instead, I feel unimportant and unable to rise to the top. Leadership opportunities are hard for me to find as there are so many people.

Question
Cops love arresting students, even when they areQuite BrightBusiness - Management and Administration
Cops love arresting students, even when they are on-campus not doing anything wrong. School is for ya-ya kids and not so much if you are more reserved. Gen-Eds are hard, time consuming, and boring as all hell. JMU wants to be a top school like UVA but they aren't. Virginia students who go here either failed to get into UVA or are borderline retarded. A lot of the northerners are rich douche bags who came to JMU to party.
