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 Jefferson State Community College
Jefferson State community college aims to develop independent critical thinkers who are intellectually agile, characterized by a zest for reasoned and civil debate, committed to understanding the diversity of the human experience, able to express ideas with clarity and grace, committed to life-long learning, equipped with ethical and civic values, and prepared for lives of leadership and service. The College is committed to providing an intellectually rigorous undergraduate education within the context of a supportive, diverse residential community. The curriculum integrates the traditional liberal arts with selected pre-professional studies. The faculty are passionate about teaching, value close relationships with students, and are committed to the pedagogical and intellectual importance of research. The flexibility and help with knowing why I am going to back to school.
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.
