Major: Music Education (This Major's Salary over time)
James Madison University is a great university! It is aesthetically beautiful, the people are nice and the food is really delicious! The University as a whole is very spread out, though with careful planning and depending on your major you can schedule most of your classes on the quad. Though JMU is not the largest university, it is very open and many places to explore! You get the large university experiece without feeling overwhelming. However that being said JMU is growing rapidly with construction going on every day, so it will quite large soon.

Competitiveness isn't a major issue unless you're in the school of music! The music majors are hardcore so if you're wanting to major in music it will be no easy task! Other majors are competitive but it isn't cut throat. The class size is respectable and I've yet to be in a class with more than 50 people. All of the professors will go out of their way to help students succeed, and I've yet to hear of a professor from hell! I will say that GenEd (our general education program to make sure you're "well rounded") is a little steep and maybe even unnecessary. Just get them out of your way and you can concentrate on your major!

Diversity isn't the best, but it's improving. You'll find that a lot of the people are the same, but there is still lots of different cultures to explore. There are some people who are stuck up but overall most people are down to earth!
