Harrisonburg’s population fluctuates with the seasons, due to the massive influx of students from James Madison University and Eastern Mennonite University during the school year. The locals often stay home during big university weekends like move-in dy, homecoming, parents' weekend, and graduation. Our big box retail shops get insanely busy during those times, and hotel rooms get very, very expensive. s.
