- In any moment of decision, the best thing you can do is the right thing, the next best thing is the wrong thing, and the worst thing you can do is nothing. Theodore Roosevelt
Graduate from the Jacksonville University
JU combines the advantages of a liberal arts college with the strengths of an urban comprehensive university. Its academic programs and resources prepare students for success in their chosen careers and for advanced study at the graduate level. Connections with area businesses and civic organizations provide meaningful internships and educational opportunities outside of the classroom.
Jacksonville University was founded in 1934 in downtown Jacksonville as a junior college offering night classes. It quickly became a four-year, co-ed institution and moved to its present location in the Arlington area of Jacksonville in the early 1950s.
