Jefferson College has a great faculty! Most of the professors are available if you need to seek additional help with a class. There are a variety of resources available to help us as students get through classes; for example, we have a learning and writing center which helps students review their paper and give input on their writing, or help with the use of APA format. Students are very personable and the student to teacher ratio is marvelous. I love small classes whereas at different colleges the student to teacher ration is for say 1:400.

My experience at JCHS has been great! The Respiratory Therapy program is outstanding. It provides not only excellent academic instruction but provides opportunities to experience practical clinical opportunities in the hospital.
The faculty and administration is very supportive. The College wants you to succeed and exceed and they do everything they can to ensure that happens.
I have really enjoyed my experience. The professors have been really helpful. You can really tell they just want every student to succeed in whatever they are doing. I have struggled myself with understanding things but they professors have been very helpful with helping me understand. There are also plenty of other options for help if you need it. They have students there you can go to for tutoring if needed. Overall my experience at Jefferson has been very good.
