On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Jacksonville University I want to welcome you to our beautiful campus. This is the beginning of what promises to be a very memorable and positive college experience for you. The highest priority of our institution is making sure that you receive the best education and college life experience possible.
JU, to me, is a very special place. I received two degrees from JU- earning my BA degree way back in 1969 and the other as a member of JU’s first Executive Masters of Business Administration ( EMBA )class , graduating in 1985. JU was integral in preparing me for not only a successful business career, but, it has provided me with so many long lasting and valued relationships. There are not many Universities where more than half of the Board of Trustees are alums- including both it’s Chair and President. We are a unique institution and I urge you to get involved at JU in some way, make the most of your time here- enjoy and learn.
As you walk about the campus you will, differing from most schools, see our President, faculty, staff and many members of our Board of Trustees ” out and about”. I urge you to come forward and introduce yourself- we are interested and we care. We want your JU experience to be the best possible!
Dolphins for Life!!

Fred Pruitt ’69/ ’85
