Jacksonville University (JU) is a private university located in Jacksonville, Florida, on the shore of the St. Johns River. JU was founded in 1934 as William J.

The college became Jacksonville University in 1956 after having moved to its current location six years earlier. The current school president is Dr. Kerry D. Romesburg. JU's colors are forest green and white, with black and gray as tertiary colors. their school mascot is the Dolphins. The school is the first NCAA sports team to have chosen the Dolphin as a mascot. Over 3,000 students attend Jacksonville University from 47 states and 27 different countries. In 2006, in the U.S. News and World Report list of "America's Best Colleges", Jacksonville University placed in the first tier among more than 150 master’s universities in the South for the fourth year in a row.
