I'm a freshman at JMU, and my advice to you is know what you are getting into before coming here. I came here to get away from the "high school" scene and didn't have much luck with that. JMU is a school that is concerned with academics til thursday and then its all alcohol and parties. But some people even drink on Monday and Tuesday nights. All everyone does on the weekends is go out and get drunk. If you are an alcoholic this school is perfect for you. The people here are extremely two faced and a lot of them came here with friends from high school. The girls are very slutty and get drunk, and the guys take advantage of that to get with girls they probably wouldn't if they were sober. There is actually nothing to do besides get drunk on the weekends. Harrisonburg can barely even be considered a town, its a dump. The weather gets really cold here. The professors are pretty good and definitely approachable and the course work is generally challenging. But think about the people before coming here, they don't really care about much besides getting drunk and high. If you are a big partier, welcome to paradise, but if you like a mix of things like me it sucks. I'm just glad they have such a wonderful gym, I spend 6 days a week there, and I'm just waiting for the end of the year and I'm getting the hell out of here. Don't come to JMU if you are looking for a mix of college experience. Come to JMU if all you care about is getting stoned or wasted.
