Jefferson College Reviews
Jefferson College is incredible! After spending a year at Southeast Missouri State, I was unhappy and transferred here (Arnold Campus) and was extremely surprised with how passionate, caring and intelligent my professors are at Jeffco! The professors actually care about my success and help me to succeed and they are understanding. Compared to my poor university experience with professors, my professors at Jeffco are passionate about what they teach! It’s so refreshing and I love it! If you are a senior in high school debating going to Jeffco, I highly recommend it: you save SO much money and get a high quality education!
I am a Music Education Major at Jefferson College and I can proudly say that I would recommend this college to any student! The professors are very professional, and help students with anything they can. The Diversity in the school is astounding with students from all over the world. All of the programs at Jefferson College help train you for lifetime careers as well as transferring onto Universities. It is a small but beautiful and safe campus, students here are very friendly and you can make friends almost instantly. All of the classmates you have become like family, and it makes the college experience so much better. With Clubs and Activities the choices are limitless, they have groups for all sorts of different studies, whether it be Music and other Arts, to Science and Services, to Athletics and Gamers. Jefferson College is the place to be, for all types of students.
My time at Jefferson College has proved vital in honing my academic strengths and allowing for myself and fellow students to develop in regards to moral character. The campus was a far improvement from my high school, and my schedule was fairly simple to manage. Many of the teachers were admittedly not ideal in the sense of their lack of organization while presenting contact (while they were knowledgeable in their field of study, their ability to transfer their knowledge to students in a classroom setting was lacking), but there were numerous exceptions to this claim. The general staff proved to be quite resourceful and dedicated to helping students in their times of need, and the fellow students were primarily kind and helpful as study partners. Although it is no Ivy League, my experience at Jeffco has most certainly proven to be a positive one.
