I'm in the Veterinary Nursing program, and it's great! I like how it's all online, because it gives me the ability to still work full time. The only reason it's not 5/5, is because I believe certain things should be done in person.

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.
I like the environment of my campus. Everything is close together and hard to get lost. There isn't much to do around campus, but it's a relaxing environment. The campus could definitely improve the amount of activities they currently hold. My typical day consists of driving from my house in the mornings to school, then heading home after class. It's not a far drive, so it isn't a problem for me. The campus is pretty small and has police officers on duty at all times to ensure the campus is safe. I feel very safe when going to my different classes.
