I enjoyed how easy it is to move around. There is constant help all around you and I feel really comfortable here. Being an athlete, you are constantly busy but it is a good time. I have met a lot of people who are really friendly and caring. The professor care about you and want you to have success no matter what. Living in the housing is a good time. Four bedroom apartments with two bathrooms is nice because you have plenty of privacy sleeping in a room by yourself. I have always felt safe at Jefferson and I have no regrets coming here.

I started attending this college when I enrolled in a dual-credit program through Herculaneum High School.
I currently attend this Junior College and I am 6 credit hours away from my Associate of Science! I will continue my education at Missouri Science and Technology in Fall 2017.

The art programs at Jefferson College are also really great. Very cultural and interactive.
I have been at Jeffco for 3 years now, graduating this semester actually, I love this school and it is a great starter option if you're like me and wanted to stay at home a bit longer before going off to university. Plus there pricing is a lot more reasonable than that of a ​university. The class sizes aren't too big either and teachers always seem willing to help and answer any questions that come to mind. I never did the on-campus housing since I'm only 15 minutes from the school but I've heard they're nice as well.
