WHAT I LIKED

I really like their online only classes. You're essentially able to do schoolwork whenever (as long as it meets deadlines). And majority of the professors I've had are nice and answer questions quickly and in depth. Highly recommend!

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Every college has good professors that get along with students and ones that students may not get along with as much. It's to be expected but look at reviews on ratemyprofessor before committing to a schedule.

WHAT I LIKED

It is a cheaper, smarter way to attend college especially as a person going into a lower-paying field.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Online learning hasn't been kind to anyone. Accessibility to people to help with career planning and planning classes has been difficult

WHAT I LIKED

Throughout JJC I enjoyed the interactions with professors, counselors, admissions, and so on. Everyone was very helpful in making me succeed at JJC.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I didn't like the online portions of the sciences offered during COVID-19, they were much harder I feel. However, they are doable and I did two anatomy classes in the summer.
