Jacksonville University Florida

About Jacksonville and Northeast Florida

Jacksonville offers JU students distinct advantages. With an area population of over one million, the city has numerous public parks hosting organized recreational programs, a major national jazz festival, a professional symphony orchestra, art museums, a science and history museum, and a zoo.

The Jacksonville Landing riverfront festival marketplace and two major shopping malls are within a short drive of the campus. A major convention center and center for the performing arts offer programs year-round, while riverfront reclamation projects have created popular riverwalks on both the north and south banks of the St. Johns River.

For sports enthusiasts, the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars play home games just across the river from the JU campus. Other spectator sports opportunities include minor league baseball, basketball and ice hockey as well as a professional soccer franchise. The Players Championship, a premier event on the PGA tour, the Bausch and Lomb women's Tennis Association tournament and Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP) events are held nearby. The World Golf Hall of Fame is less than a half-hour from campus.

Northeast Florida is steeped in history. St. Augustine, founded by Spanish explorers in the 1500's, is the nation's oldest city and is 40 miles south of Jacksonville. Near the campus is Fort Caroline, an ill-fated French Huguenot settlement on the St. Johns River.

For weekends and holidays, Walt Disney World, Seaworld and Universal Studios, located near Orlando, are only a two-and-a-half hour drive away. Space shuttle launches and landings at NASA's Kennedy Space Center are two hours away. And for those who simply want to enjoy Florida's surf and sand, Atlantic Ocean beaches are less than 20 minutes away from the JU campus.
