Since JMU is a public university, that is technically a true statement.

Does not mean squat. Admissions at in state public schools for students coming from northern Virginia are irrational. Kids get admitted to better schools and rejected by those that do not rank as highly.

William & Mary was originally a private, royally chartered college. The school went broke during the Civil War. After the war Virginia took it over.

James Madison University (JMU) in Harrisonburg, Virginia is supported by the Commonwealth of Virginia, along with student tuition, room and board and other student fees.

The OP is delusional, most likely on drugs, and the type of individual with whom you don't want your family associating with in any form. Ignore the troll and let em babble. Free speech is a right, let them enjoy it while they are waiting to be sent away to the asylum.

I am sure the court and judge will be Private as well in their opinion. :)

The references you cite in the post above are all outdated. Please refer to JMU’s press release regarding their status as a private university. It’s really not that hard to grasp: even though they are private, they still receive some money from Richmond.

This guy thinks he is being so clever. He constantly makes references to recent press releases, but he fails to indicate which specific references he is relying on and to quote the language from those releases which supports his position. This leaves him the option that if anyone tracks down a press release which doesn't contain anything which supports his claim that JMU is private, he can turn around and say that wasn't the correct press release. This approach might work with your blow buddies in 10th grade. It doesn't work in the adult world.

There are two arguments which have been advanced to support the claim that state universities are in fact private. The first is the funding argument. In recent years the amount of state provided funding for operations of many state universities has plummetted, so that the schools are relying on alternative sources for funds. This isn't dispositive. There are a number of government activities that are funded entirely from self generated funds.

The more technical argument is that schools like James Madison or the University of Virginia are not part of the government like Fairfax County Public Schools, but are instead simply owned by the governement. It is true that these entities have their own chief administrators and their own boards which govern how they are run. However their activities have consistently been treated as activities of the state. Disciplinary and police actions are subject to 14th amendment due process requirements which apply to governments. Tort claims against the entities have to overcome the hurdle of sovereign immunity. If the state wanted to assume direct control of the operations of JMU, UVA or any other state school, they could do so.

I didn't know that JMU is private. I'm thinking about receiving the second degree, so I'm interested in information about Unis. I've recently found a good source https://www.collegeapps.com/. This is an informative site for those people who want to enter a college or University. I read an article about those educational institutions that offer full-ride scholarships. JMU wasn't there, but in general, I was surprised by the amount.

Gerrymanderer2 (G2, the OP original poster or spammer just above, perhaps both) posts several lies on ffu daily - many think he's a fx co gov worker who is getting paid to do it for false DNC democrat "advertising". He floods ffu with useless posts to bump down major news, demoralize americans. G2 posts fecal matter, mutilated bodies, child porn, foreign drug ads and sneaker ads, tells people to kill themselves and government should seize them and put them on psych pills in prison without a trial - decided by DNC democrats gov workers, promotes kangaroo courthouse trials, gives anti-religious rants, gives satanic ritual rants, posts black males with large dicks on white young females, portends white low birth rate and fall of USA whites, suggestive of food tampering/poisoning to solve the white problem, and anything possible to demoralize any americans on ffu - all of which are fake news he never responds to proofs it is fake. (perhaps g2 is a chinese prisoner or isis member - but definitely knowledgeable of fx co gov from the inside at times). The website operator has told him "not to post or return" (in an existing post by the sysop): not because of a political leaning but for continual illegal and gross spam along with messages that are only to demoralize if not kill others. G2 plays at financial terrorism as well; continually reporting fake and false financial data. G2 fakes emergency pleas to deaden the real response to any real one - like a devil. G2 continually spams FFU - which all users complain of: it is a real DoS attack - the attacks are not just topic bumps but designed to inject key words to kill ffu and google search results. G2 continually promotes drug use, alcoholic experimentation, and tries to convince members to meet hookers using photos from the 1990's (i doubt any that did are not arrested or dead). G2 continually posts racist posts and gay posts egging others to comment - then attacks who does - AND RECORDS IT (likely for political extortion). G2 and dems MONITOR AND RECORD* "conservatives who blast out these democrat lies and illegal abuse of telephone privilege (sometimes in a raw manner, being so jaded by the job)" (users who object to G2's actions listed so far). One ffu member discovered a south american country recording FFU databasing all posts in a non-chat database format - and when questioned - another member quickly said it was all coincidence and that this was done everywhere in the world on all sites: WHICH IS A LIE. Not all countries record the every word of what fairfaxians say on blogs. Extortion is also mentioned by G2. And the idea he's fishing for comments he can use against anyone who'd run for office is "just assume he's in that business" - and i've warned others that is what he fishes for - excuses to attack conservatives and or to extort them.

SOME POSTERS ON FFU FEEL G2 IS A JOKER: I ASSURE YOU THE ABOVE COMPLAINTS ARE GENUINELY A THREAT TO ONLOOKERS (THE UN-INTIATED), NON-DEMOCRATS, AND TO ANYONE STATING THAT LAWS SHOULD BE IMPOSED ON DEMOCRATS EQUALLY AS DEMOCRATS IMPOSE THEM ON OTHERS: MONEY

LEGAL NOTICE: DEMOCRATS HAVE `SWATTED' THE HOMES OF SOME FFU POSTS WHO REFUTE G2 AND CALL DEMS OUT ON THEFT AND LIES - AND EXPOSE THE LAWS THEY COULD BE PROSECUTED FOR BREACH OF TRUST. THAT'S A CONFIRMED WITNESSED FACT. IT IS NO JOKE WHAT G2 IS DOING. HIS CONTINUAL FISHING IS NOT IDLE - THEY ARE TRIGGERED AND ARMED. which i've warned others about since, about 2010 - that G2 is fishing for men to "erase" politically, by any means available to him


GO BACK TO HELL G2. YOU ARE EXPOSED.

all of the above is a lie

all private colleges in USA were corrupted during Clinton - they all took "loans" they couldn't pay and became (at least half) government funded
