Great experience with JSCC 2016/2017. Excellent staff & students in the Veterinary Technology program!
Instructors communicate well with students and are very thorough in teaching. Veterinary Technology instructors are extremely knowledgeable & strive for students to succeed.
The campus is somewhat spread out but easily accessible with the help of a map. Seems like a quiet, safe place to study with minimal distractions. However food, shopping and other businesses are not too far away.
Pleasant experience with financial aid & admissions departments and all JSCC staff.
Online courses are easily accessible & the JSCC website is very informative & easy to maneuver.
Overall pleasant experience with JSCC. Highly recommend this college and the Veterinary Technology Program.
Review Your College
For my Jeff state experience it was the equivalent of an educational prison. To put this into some perspective, I enrolled into Jeff State after a poor academic freshman year of college at the University of Alabama Birmingham. Jeff state is a high school without lockers, but it was exactly what I needed. No distractions, no frat parties to be a part of, no campus life, nothing. Just commute to class, attend class, go home. Going from a full university experience to a community college was humbling to say the least. With all these things, added with the shame I felt upon myself for wasting my mother's time and money the year prior, I was focused and dead set to escape this social prison. So I did just that, and now i'm due to graduate this may. For what its worth and what it offers, Jeff state is a tremendous educational institute. From its great diversity (age and race), to its crippling boredom, Jefferson State Community College is a great choice for anyone in the Birmingham area.
Being in a communication major is the best thing that has ever happened to me. The level of networking opportunities that I am exposed to is unbelievable! The teachers are very hands on and are passionate about what they do. The workload isn't overbearing because when you do what you love it doesn't seem as if your working at all. I am enjoying discovering new things about my desired career. I haven't been fortunate enough to have any internships or job opportunities as of yet, but they are definitely on the way!
