Living In James Madison University, VA

Situated in Harrisonburg, Virginia, James Madison University has a long and storied history dating back to the start of the 20th century. The school was originally established in 1908 by the Virginia General Assembly as the State Normal and Industrial School for Women at Harrisonburg, however, it wasn't until 1916 that the school began granting bachelor's degrees. After several name changes during its early years, the institution became known as Madison College in 1934 in honor of President James Madison. An all-female school for much of its history, Madison College began admitting men in 1966, which coincided with many other institutional changes, including an expanded campus and the start of doctoral programs. Eleven years later, the school changed its name to James Madison University and has since become one of the most respected institutes for higher education in the nation.

According to its mission statement, James Madison University is "a community committed to preparing students to be educated and enlightened citizens who lead productive and meaningful lives."
