What our students say

“I always wanted to go here. I knew I wanted to work in hospitality. I saw how the service worked in Europe and Russia, but everyone would agree that the US has the friendliest people and the best service so I decided to study in this country. I had a choice between two universities but I decided JMU because it’s highly ranked. Virginia is so beautiful. This is the place I’d like to be."
