John Brown University Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (8)
This college is a christian college that applies religion in its courses. I joined because I thought that I would take 2 biblical classes, which is I thought would not be bad but then I noticed that they input religion in other classes as well and I struggled. I felt it would of been too much work to understand the religion and also the actual work on top of it I decided to drop the college and find another online college that would suit my needs more.
JBU will challenge you and will prepare you well for whatever field you are hoping to embark on. The professors are more than approachable because they care about students' success. The people on campus are welcoming and helpful, even if you don't know them very well. There is always something to do and there's always goals to reach.
JBU was a great choice for me due to the great program outline and wonderful online only program.
Very rude and not willing to work with students on payment plans, they just want their money and want it now. They truly only care about one thing and that is themselves and not about their students. Regardless how you try to work with them, they are not easy to work with.
I experienced the most supportive and encouraging community of faculty, staff, and friends at JBU. In fact, I still connect often with many of my professors and friends for professional networking, personal references, or just to hang out if we are in the same city. JBU prepared me both intellectually and emotionally for life after college and I am really thankful that I chose to attend.
John Brown University is a great school if you are looking for a Christian environment. It is located in a beautiful part of Northwest Arkansas, in a sweet little town that loves being a college town. For education majors JBU is ideal as you will be placed in classroom observational experiences from the first semester. The teachers show a genuine interest in the students, and love to help out however they can. What is special about JBU is the loving community feeling it inspires in the students.
John Brown University is a school that truly cares about their students' success. They understand that work, life, and school balance can be hard for adults continuing their education so they work with students when they can. At John Brown University they incorporate God into the program and focus not only on educational growth (mind), but also on heart and soul. They want their students to be better professionals as well as enhance their personal lives. I appreciate how relevant the course content is to the real business world and find that because of this, the learning gained is more of a value rather than simply learning only book knowledge.
John Brown University is exceptional in student support, both administratively and in the classroom. The majority of staff go above and beyond to provide the best higher education experience an upper level institution can provide, and are cost conscientious as well. Religious, but not mainstream, I was not made to feel out of place or unwelcome. John Brown is inclusive and non-discriminatory in my experience as an older, non-traditional student. Though my classes were primarily online, there were multiple opportunities to collaborate and debate with other students. When I am ready to move on to an MBA, John Brown is my University of choice.
