Q&A with Tim

At JWU, education is not confined to the four walls of the classroom. You’re not going to spend four years with your nose buried in a book, learning theories you may never get a chance to apply — you’re going to get out there and apply them, be it through internships, group projects, leadership opportunities, competitions and more.

What Advice Do You Have For Incoming Freshmen?

Dive into learning....for life. Have the mindset of being a producer (of value to people and organizations), rather than a passive consumer.
