How do you feel about diversity on JMU's Campus?
Since coming to JMU as a prospective student, diversity has made a complete turnaround. The Office of Admissions is definitely working hard to increase diversity enrollment to the college, and though change will not come in a few days SMO is definitely working to promote a diverse campus while fostering leadership among students. Our goal is to make JMU an option through educational awareness and by doing so I am confident that we will significantly increase diversity across campus.
