Many brand new Dukes took to social media on January 10th to share the great news: they got into JMU! We are so proud of all the students who were accepted Early Action this month, and we can’t wait to congratulate the rest of the class of 2022 as they receive their decisions. Here’s a post highlighting a few recent acceptances!

Bridget Murphy

High school senior Bridget Murphy shared how she felt when Early Action decisions were released:

“My brother is a graduating senior this year at JMU and over the years he has spent there I have visited often for football games and to watch his volleyball games. I instantly fell in love with JMU and knew I had to apply. The hardest part was of course, the wait. When I logged on to my portal to see that I had been accepted it was the best news I had received in a long time. I ran around dancing and smiling for hours. While I have not officially said “yes” to JMU, I know that is where I belong. I plan on majoring in Media Arts and Design and minoring in Communication Studies. Hopefully I will become a part of The Daily Duke and the Class of 2022 at JMU.”

Bridgetβ€”I’ll be sure to put in a good word at The Daily Duke for you!

From one senior to all you soon-to-be freshmen, college really does go by in the blink of an eye, so be sure to cherish every moment as a Duke!
