Review CUNY John Jay College of Criminal Justice
Our school is unique because we are located in New York City. For those who enjoy this environment, you would love this campus. However, I have transferred here from a suburban campus, and transitioning to this lifestyle is quite difficult. The advisement here is okay, except for the students who are part of the Honors or ACE Program. I do believe it is important to make the students reach out for help in advisement and career services, though. Fortunately, there are many wonderful, energetic professors here that motivate me to learn more. I have heard a lot of positive experiences from friends who visited the Career Center Services and I am looking forward to meeting with them soon!
John Jay has a campus full of interesting activities that are fun. There are tons of scholarships and their reputation stands out well to the media. All of the professors have hands on experience either through research or their profession off campus. Basically they can fill the majority of your needs as a student such as academic advice, peer mentoring, free yoga classes, brand new black box movie theater , community service opportunities , a food pantry, immigration services, apply for food stamps and free tax preparation, daily community hour in the lobby where they give free food on thursdays and services to the students. Not to mention the number of student clubs they have and weekly entertainment for the students. Graduate school has an immerse opportunity for research in the field and on campus.
As a high school senior, I was scared to take out loans for college without fully knowing what I wanted to do. The advice everyone seemed to give me was take a whole bunch of different classes and you'll figure it out but because I knew myself I decided to go to John Jay College of Criminal Justice because I could definitely relate to its message, its affordability, it's location and it's recognition for social justice. In hindsight, I realized I could not have made a better decision. I received a great quality education for a third of the price. I was a political science and government major with two minors; one i history and criminal l justice. FYI: just because it's a criminal justice school does not mean you have to major in criminal justice. There are so many other majors to choose from. I glad I attended John Jay College because I discovered their Pre Law Institute, an excellent resource which helped me get where I am today. You can't go wrong.
