I really enjoyed being at Jackson College for my first couple of years. I felt like I had so many resources available to me and enjoyed all of my classes much more because of it! It also allowed me the chance to be in an honors society, which I hadn't been able to do in high school.

I have found the staff and faculty to be very helpful and friendly. I feel as though Jackson College is very ‘student success’ oriented. I was made aware of many helpful tools and resources during my enrollment.
Unfortunately some of the online, or hybrid classes I have taken were confusing and hard to navigate. But I understand that especially during a time like this, that the transition to online is not the most ideal for everyone, and I believe many teachers are trying their best to make it user-friendly.
My experience at Jackson College has been very well. I enjoyed meeting new people, and meeting my new professors. I liked that there were always activities to do every week. There also were different groups and clubs that you could join. While at the college the dorms were very nice and neat as well. There was a lot of space and storage. I lived with three other suit mates each person had their own room. No one had to share a room and there were two bathrooms. One thing I would want to change are the electives. I really would like to learn a different language, but they do not offer those type of electives at Jackson College.
