Incoming Freshmen


Welcome to JMU and to the University Outpost! Many of you have or will make the choice to attend JMU in the fall.  With your decision, University Outpost wants to congratulate you on your achievements.  Our Store is Alumni and Family owned, and in our 30 years of business, we have established many friendships. We’re excited to welcome more friends and family to the JMU Community.

Each year during summer springboard orientations, we invite each incoming freshmen and his or her family to experience the Outpost.  Although your time spent on campus can be fulfilling, we do have extended hours to accommodate a last minute visit.  Parents and other family members who have joined the student on their orientation will realize they have more free time. Don’t hesitate to wander off campus to visit us! We are only across the Port Republic Bridge - not very far at all! 

With this visit, the Outpost extends an offer to sign up for our Game Day Shirt that we give away during one of the home Football Games - no purchase necessary! We’ve been a member of this community long enough to know that most persons love a free shirt.

Below are set of questions you can fill out today or you can wait until you arrive during your orientation.

Again, congratulations and welcome to James Madison University - - - Go Dukes!!
