Located on a beautiful 190-acre campus overlooking the St. Johns River in Jacksonville, FL, Jacksonville University is a traditional, accredited, long-standing university with an outstanding faculty and unparalleled academics. JU offers one of the largest online RN to BSN degree programs in the country and is recognized as one of the nation’s foremost teaching institutions. In fact, Jacksonville University was recently named one of "America’s Best Colleges" for the sixth consecutive year in 2010 by U.S. News & World Report.
Jacksonville University’s Board of Trustees made a decision that brings long-term financial stability to the university which marks the beginning of a new era of growth. The board voted to enter into a partnership with Hudson Capital, a residential real estate developer based in Miami Beach, to sell 62 acres of undeveloped riverfront land. The sale is the latest step in the university’s plan to improve its financial portfolio, increase student enrollment and retention, improve campus facilities and encourage community pride on its campus.
