JMU is an interesting place, to be sure. i see it as a microcosm of everything one can hope to expect from a public university. You will meet every conceivable type of person here, staff and students. You may sit between the trust-funded Fraternity brother from Northern Virginia on the left and the artsy-introverted girl from Massachusetts on your right. The odd thing about JMU, you could wind up getting along wonderfully with both. Friendliness is key and you get what you give. Professors, like students run the gamut from the ones that will move heaven and earth to see their students pass, to the ones that will merciless crush your dreams with a smile (ratemyprfessor is going to be your best friend). I came in knowing i wanted to be in marketing and the program is phenomenal, i am definitely being challenged and the career resources are competitive but certainly abundant. Housing is only guaranteed for freshman year but off-campus townhomes, houses, and apartments are affordable and varied (its a buyers market and rent goes from about $300 up to $600 monthly). Food is everything they say it is, delicious and available in amazing variety; we have at least 7 different places to eat not including coffee shops and snack bars. The social life is what you make of it. There are plenty of parties most weekends and a bus system to get you to and from them. joining Greek life isn't necessary but if you find an organization that likes you and you can afford it, there is no reason not to. On a final note, the traffic and parking situation are definite problems, all upper class-men bring their vehicles and there aren't nearly enough spots
