I know it isn’t Christmas, but here is a perfect example of the heart of JMU
I have fond memories of the food, yes, the food. It was amazing! The flowers and landscaping have garnered many institutional awards for good reason. Walking to class along blossom lined streets in the spring fills your heart. Having doors opened and strangers saying hello at every turn, makes one feel welcomed – and loved. Bluestones and the Blue Ridge give you the sense of a strong foundation.
My van proudly takes Duke Dog with us everywhere and proclaims my love on my license plate.
One glimpse of purple forges an instant connection – even with an author, a fellow alum, you’ve never met before.
I struggle fully share the depth of sentiment and passion I have for JMU so I’ll let the words of my Alma Mater speak for me.
Madison, James Madison, We’ll be forever true.
Our loyalty will always be to JMU
While friends remain within our hearts
And knowledge guides our way
James Madison will lead us on
To conquer each new day
I’ll leave you with a little ah-mazing music from the pride of JMU - The Marching Royal Dukes. Enjoy!
Tell me why you love your Alma Mater? Give them a little love by leaving their name while you’re at it. No hatin’ here.
