News for Students from the

College of Health and Behavioral Studies

August 29, 2013


The evidence is clear.  Students who participate in educationally purposeful activities, both inside and beyond the classroom, get more out of the college experience.  Engaged students become better prepared for successful employment, admission to graduate school, and for professional responsibilities.  We encourage all students to take advantage of opportunities available at JMU. 

To help you find ways to get involved, opportunities for students and an expanded event calendar now included on our college website.  Please take advantage of available opportunities.  Here’s a sample of the posted opportunities and events that may be of interest:
