"There are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpations."
- James Madison
A Message From Our Chairwoman:
Thank you for your Interest in the JMU College Republicans!
One of our main goals is to provide a welcome space for conservative students to express themselves, and find their place in politics. Too often we have heard from students across the Commonwealth that they feel as if they cannot publicly express their political views in fear of ridicule from their peers. By providing opportunities to get involved in local and state races, we make sure each and every member has a voice in the Republican Party and feels inspired to speak out and make a difference in the community.
Being a member of this club for the past year and a half and beginning my second term on the Executive Board has shown me what amazing things can happen when like minded and hard working individuals come together and work towards a common goal. I have watched my fellow executive board members and friends take internships, jobs, and post graduate work with campaigns working to make Virginia a better place and spread conservative ideals across the Commonwealth. Seeing the success of past College Republicans and our current members is what inspires me everyday to work hard and keep speaking out for what I believe in, and I hope you will be inspired as well.
If you are visiting our website for the first time, I encourage you to sign up for our newsletter so you can stay up to date with what we are doing in the community. If you are a student or a prospective member of our club, sign up for our weekly email list and make sure you don't miss important opportunities on campus and beyond!
On behalf of the entire Executive Board, thank you for your interest in the JMU College Republicans. We are looking forward to a year of Republican Victories across the Commonwealth and can’t wait to hit the ground running.
