James Madison University Reviews & Ratings

  • Had an amazing time with my daughter watching the football game. Great fun!!

  • Would highly recommend this university. It alters how you see the four-year experience. I am also going to share that this campus is safe, extraordinarily beautiful, and always incredible. A legend, James Madison University is and always has been amazing-and I highly doubt that is EVER going to change. Come, and you’ll see this for yourself. It’s not something to just read about, you WILL see how and what I mean :) Love the community, and always am grateful for this very empowering school.

  • Having been to a few campuses in my life I think James Madison is one of the very best. Well kept, Green and very incredible.

  • Absolutely amazing place to attend for undergraduate coursework! The campus environment is so friendly and caring. Everyone is happy to be there and welcomes you with open arms. On the downside, the school focuses a lot of money into their college or business and the professors are way overpaid. Other departments make half of what business professors make and deserve more. Also, there’s constantly construction and although it’s for the benefit of the students, many won’t experienced these finished buildings before they graduate. Parking was also bad when I attended but I’m told it’s getting better. The dorms are also highly disproportionate in what they offer. Some have AC and WIFI and others have neither. And they’re all the same cost. Move off campus the first second you get! Unfortunately, it is also a big drinking school but there are options for you if you do not want to partake. You do not need to give in the the peer pressure. On the plus side, we have absolutely wonderful dining and so many options!! We have a large amount of outdoor seating and the quad is a beautiful place to relax, play frisbee, or chat with your friends. And UREC is the best recreation center ever!!!

  • Great university. Fabulous business school with a caring and well educated staff. The professors have open doors and always welcome students to discuss school or career advice. Good food here too!
