It's a great college if you're looking for a small college with no party scene. The professors are amazing, at least from what I've had. There are amazing opportunities to be had, such as research internships. You really get out what you put into this college. Also, they are SO helpful if you ever run into academic or disability issues!
Review Johnson State College
As a non-traditional, full time student I loved Johnson State College. The professors were very knowledgeable and the staff were very helpful. I was a single mother when I attended JSC and I found the professors to be very accommodating when my children were sick, had snow days, etc. This school is very laid back but they also expect you to do your assignments. Academic Support Services was also a great help, offering tutoring assistance in areas that I needed extra help in, with no additional cost to me. My advisors really cared about me and my progress and never made me feel like they were too busy to speak to me. I also enjoyed the smaller class sizes. If you're looking for a smaller college that offers a laid back atmosphere and challenging course work, this is the school for you.
When I was applying to colleges Johnson State caught my eye because I received personal help with my application process from a real human being in real time, not a prerecorded or written message to tide me over until someone had time for me. My experience here has been almost completely positive. Whenever I had a problem of any kind i know that i can go to any number of school employees for help from couselors to teachers, professors and my work study bosses. The school is very active in keeping students involved in the community and in creating a bonded wholesome community on campus.
