James Madison University most-recommended university in the US

Posted 16 November 2018

James Madison University has been ranked the no.1 most-recommended university in the United States in the Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education’s US College Rankings.

These trusted rankings are based on the feedback of 200,000 students at US colleges and universities. The survey asks students how satisfied they are in 15 key areas, including quality of teaching, facilities, and campus diversity.

When asked how likely they were to recommend their college or university to a friend or family member, JMU’s students were the most positive nationwide.

The JMU experience

It’s no surprise that students would recommend their JMU experience; its ‘all-American’ college lifestyle combines a beautiful campus, great teaching, a huge number of sports teams and organizations, and a vibrant community atmosphere.

In line with the University’s value of civic responsibility, JMU’s students are encouraged to further enrich their learning experience through community projects.
