For Students

Student Counseling Center (SCC)

JU’s Student Counseling Center is committed to the development of the whole person: academically, personally, socially, and ethically. We believe that a student’s intellectual and personal development are inseparable, and we strive to help students reach their potential as individuals, both academically and personally. Mental health wellness is an integral part of the services provided by SCC.

Office of Student Involvement

What happens outside the classroom plays a huge role in the college experience. Jacksonville University creates a variety of ways to get fully involved from day one. The Office of Student Involvement assists in planning events on campus, oversees Fraternity and Sorority Life, and stands ready to support and coordinate all student organizations. JU believes in incredible experiences beyond classroom walls as part of its holistic approach to student success and wellness.

Spiritual Life

Many students express an interest in developing spirituality during their university years. Opportunities to do so with other students can be explored through the religious, spiritual, and philosophical groups on campus.

Arlington churches, synagogues, mosques, and other spiritual centers welcome your attendance. A list of spiritual offerings in the area is available for download.

The Dolphin Allies program seeks to support the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community at Jacksonville University.
