John A Logan College Reviews
It is difficult to rate the school overall because some programs are MUCH better than others. The math/engineering professors tend to be very helpful, insightful, and challenging; but the student culture can be defeatist (maybe because so many students are taking calc/physics and working 40 hours a week at the same time). The music program is really bad. The teachers range from okay but boring, to fun but irresponsible—at best. The only really good music instructor was moved to a paperwork position and the music program has been a mess since then—low to no academic expectations from teachers and an unambitious student body that doesn’t care about school. History dept is easy but interesting. History classes tend to be fun and informative with quite a bit of student involvement.
John A Logan has been a blessing to attend. Being here at John A feels like I am apart of a family away from my family at home. There goal is to make a difference in our individual live and give us learning opportunities for us to be successful. From the president to the janitors, everyone here gives me the tools to succeed and to be prepared for what my next steps will be. John A stands out from other community colleges with the programs they offer and the facilities they have on campus. Community colleges have bad reputations and going into it I had my fears of how I would not get a good education. However, John A Logan Impressed me with how much they have made a difference in my life.
John A. Logan College is a 2-year community college in Southern Illinois. They also have multiple licensure and certificate programs. Their nursing program has a huge pass rate for the NCLEX test, which is why I personally chose this school. JALC has great connections with 4-year universities to help students transfer from an Associate's program to a larger school. I have had a great experience here at John A. Logan College.
