Johnson State College Reviews

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.
I enjoy the people who attend Johnson because they're not used to the small community, as a result, I show them what there is to do around campus and then they can enjoy themselves. The teachers are super helpful and understanding under any circumstances while is an absolute blessing and a student will rarely get that opportunity elsewhere.
The wellness center has definitely gone downhill a bit, but the counselors there are wonderful and helpful. The public safety officers are a toss up some of them are wonderful and some of them are not particularly helpful.
I personally know several students in my area of study who have been or were offered jobs before they even graduated from our school. One of my close friends has three offers for good positions in several different theaters, another acquaintance just finished an internship with Disney. My best friend got a job with a local professional theater company less than two months after he graduated.

Campus housing is definitely more expensive thn it seems like it should be after looking at rent on appartments in the local town and fining that it would be cheaper to rent than Live on campus even without a meal plan. The buildings are in pretty good shape and are kept very clean. I have always felt comfortable in the dorms and in the college appartments.

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.
This college puts all that responsibility into the student. They are helpful if you go to the resources, but mostly it's the student's determination and responsibility. The resources can be very helpful if students use them and use them a lot and to their advatange.

Class sizes are great. Some Professors care more about their students health, mental health and sucess other professor do not care.Variety of classes is okay but getting better. Things could be done better.
Public Safety can be big help sometimes and other's they can be useless. I feel safe during the day walking across campus, not so much at night. The college could take some of the crimes/cases more seriously and could do way better. Could be way better.
Some dorm buildings are better than other, depends on what you want. Every building but Arthur's have big rooms and live on a floor, Arthur's is suite living and have smaller rooms but big common room. Arthur's is better for singles than anyother building. Marnetti is oaky, plus it has a kitchen, not sure if the GPA is in effect still. Govonor's and Sentator's buildings are okay too. Sentator's is active wild building and Govonor's is a laid back building. I enjoyed living in Govonor's.
Not a sports fan. Could be better. More sports.
Johnson is what you make of it.
There is a lot of drug use at school, pretty much everyone smokes pot or does acid or e. The one thing that I like is that no one is peer pressured, everyone does their own think and could careless if you wanted to smoke or drink.
I work for Public Safety for my school and I understand the processes that we use to help keep students safe. This gives me full confidence of our safety
For me, the education department is amazing! I can get a great teaching job for myself, however most other departments do not have the same value than other schools.

I love this school, I just wish that people wouldn't tell me how all Christians are horrible people and are unaccepting of others but then say how disgusted they are that all Muslims are blamed for terrorism. Trying to point them out how they are being unfair is getting highly annoying
I miss living in the dorms and want to return. Especially since I work in the dorm buildings
I'm on an intramural team and when someone fell on their ankle and needed some ice, the trainers refused to give us any because we weren't varsity. The captain had to run out of the gym to find some ice.

The athletics are treated like gods compared to other students, yet all of our teams suck...
I really enjoy this school, however there are unfair ways for students to sign up for courses. Students who are on varsity teams get to sign up for classes before other students, and as a student who would be on a team if there was a swim team, find this extremely unfair.
No one talks about rape on campus, victim blaming is strong and the administration does nothing to peruse possible rape cases.
