Phyllis & Al Mirabella, parents of Micayla
We’ve grown more impressed with JCU each passing year. The faculty and staff have not only been a part of Micayla’s exceptional educational development but also her personal growth. We have seen her grow into a strong, independent, intelligent woman. She is getting a world-class education with the attention and support that only a smaller institution can provide – in one of the world’s most beautiful cities. It has truly been an opportunity of a lifetime!
Agata Stachowicz-Stanusch, mother of Natalia
My modest contribution is an expression of my support for JCU's activities and my praise for the quality of the education JCU provides. I am proud that my daughter is a member of JCU, a university that is a 'temple of wisdom' that not only promotes the discovery and exchange of knowledge but also shapes wise people equipped with knowledge and integrity.
Bill Miles & Helene Rassias-Miles, parents of Matthew
Careful, conscientious, open, aware, and present are words we often use to describe the university and those who work there. From gap year student to a History and Classical Studies double major with a minor in Philosophy, the journey has been profound for Matthew, and for us. Over Matthew’s years at JCU, we have been lucky to get to know members of the administration, board, faculty, and staff. Today, looking back, we admire their deep devotion to the students and to their futures.
