Q of the Week: Is it possible to balance work/ internships and school in college?
“Balancing work and school in college is very difficult, but learning how to manage your time can help so much! I am a pretty organized person, but sometimes I still struggle to manage my time. I use a planner app called MyHomework, which helps me keep track of all my homework assignments and tests so I don’t forget about them!
Also, having an open and honest relationship with your boss/supervisor is so important. I work for admissions here on campus, and my boss has been absolutely great at accommodating my busy schedule! Have grace for yourself and don’t be afraid to admit when you need to take a break or slow down. You are surrounded by an amazing community here that will have your back when you need it!”-Alexa Roberts, Senior, Kinesiology Major

Q of the Week: How has your relationship with God grown while being in a Christian Higher Education?
“I expected that going to a Christian college would make me a "Superchristian." I was sorely mistaken. In fact, during my time at Jessup I nearly gave up being a Christian at all. What I discovered is that Jessup is not perfect, just like the church everywhere. It is a broken system filled with people who need God's grace just as much as anyone else, and I entered as broken as the brokenest of them.
Realizing these two facts began a difficult process. My disappointment with the Christians around me quickly gave way to frustration over the Christian within and then to doubt about Christianity itself. I found that the more I learned about God and the Bible in my classes, the more and more I struggled with my faith. I could not find answers as fast as the questions mounted. What I did find, however, is faculty and friends who cared enough to listen and struggle along with me. This made all the difference. Over time, they helped me realize the truth of the Gospel: that we are all broken and living in exile from God's perfect world, but through Jesus we are slowly being restored. This restoration takes a long time however. At Jessup you will find a community of people in all different stages of the process, but also one that is committed to helping each other take one step further towards its completion.
With the help of my family at Jessup, God has taught me that no one is a Superchristian (except Jesus) and that He wants me to follow Him just the way I am, even if I don't know all the answers and haven't achieved Superchristian status yet.” -Nathan Boudon ... See MoreSee Less
History of Jessup Part 2!
In January of 1939, Dr. Eugene Sanderson asked William L. Jessup to carry on the vision to start a Bible college in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. On September 20, 1939, classes at San Jose Bible College began with fourteen students. The curriculum focused on the study of the Bible and preparation for church vocations.
Look at how far we’ve come 🙂

Q of the week: How do you find peace + quiet in the midst of a community environment while living on campus?
“How do I find peace and quiet?
As a student working towards a Business Management degree and also involved with the music program, my life can often seem too busy. One of the best ways to find peace is to surround yourself with good people. At that point, peace doesn't have to be found in a study room or the library. Jessup is well known for having a strong sense of community (you will hear that a lot if you come here). But it is true.😊
Once in a while, I like to take a quick skateboard detour around campus just to feel the wind on my face and get a little sun. 🤘
Enjoy life. It’s too short to let too many things get the best of you. Find good people who you click with, and enjoy the time you have together. Once in a while it’s okay to lock yourself in your room to get ahead on some work. But college really only happens once. So enjoy it 😌”

History of Jessup!
Did you know William Jessup University began during the Great Depression of the 1930’s? Dr. Eugene Sanderson, who had already started three other colleges, saw the need for a Bible college in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. He purchased two large houses on adjacent lots at Fifth and San Carlos Streets in San Jose, across from the campus of San Jose Teachers College (now San Jose State University). Over the course of several years, he improved the property and built a chapel for the faculty and student body who were yet to come.
