Why did you choose JMU
I chose JMU first and foremost for the campus and atmosphere. I had been to smaller schools my whole life, so I was looking for a bigger school with a great campus and JMU had that. I also wanted to go somewhere that would take me outside my comfort zone, 13 hours away from home in Alabama and not knowing a single person seemed to fit that.
