As a former Jimmie, you know first hand the benefits of attending a smaller college where you knew your professors (often they were even your advisors), could participate in numerous activities, and were known as an individual not as a number. Hopefully this left a lasting impression on you.

We are now asking you to help share that experience with others. Do you know of a high school Junior or Senior who would consider becoming a Jimmie? If so, we would love to hear about them. It is impossible for us to know the names of every high school student so we have to rely on direct mail, college fairs and ACT name acquisition to identify potential future students. However, we feel the best way to get in touch with a student is to hear about them from others. We still believe in recruiting students the old fashioned way, with personal attention, care, and concern for them as individuals.


Legacy Awards are available for incoming freshmen who are the children, grandchildren or siblings of graduates (or currently enrolled siblings). The Legacy Award is valued at $1,000 annually (for a total value of $4,000 over four years).

Alumni Referral Awards are available to any new prospective student officially referred by an alumnus of the University who applies, is admitted and enrolls at the University of Jamestown. The future “Jimmie” will receive a $250 annual Alumni Referral Award. This award is renewable up to a total value of $1,000 over four years. (Legacy Award recipients are not eligible for the Alumni Referral Award.)
