  2. Discover the building where you’ll spend most of your time as a student, whether it’s in the Dolan Center for Science & Technology, Boler College of Business, or O’Malley Center. Whatever major you choose at JCU, you’ll find your community within one of these buildings. 
  3. Tour one of our first-year residence halls where students live, study, and relax, and check out our students’ other favorite hang out spots on campus, like our newly renovated Student Center.
