JBU: a sense of community

Tuesday, March 10, 2015

I remember my first day of graduate school at JBU. I was super nervous, filled with anxiety, and not very confident in my abilities as a student in a graduate program. Those feelings were alleviated the moment I walked into the classroom that first day. Students were introducing themselves to me the minute I walked in.

Or would you prefer something like ‘How to win friends and influence people’?” I could go on, but experience tells me that you (and, particularly, they) would probably be bored and unimpressed.

"JBU was my top choice"

"JBU was my top choice"

As silly as it sounds, the John Brown University Graduate Counseling program befitted my top choice – and only choice – when I searched for graduate school. My counseling teacher at another Christian university invited Dr. Romig to give a class lecture on play therapy. Together, they sold me on the Read More
