Jones County Junior College Reviews
I am excited to go to Jones because of past alumni experience while attending. My mom and my dad are both graduates of JCJC. I, myself have also while in high school dual enrolled in courses to get a step ahead of my education. My current experience has been very pleasant and made my overwhelming choice to continue my education at Jones an easy one. I hope after my two years there to transfer to either Mississippi State or University of Southern Mississippi. My mom often said that if Jones had been a four year institution, she would have never went anywhere else. So far, I completely understand what she meant by that.
I thoroughly enjoyed my time here, especially living in the dorms. I had many wonderful professors who actually cared about teaching. My adviser, Joey Emfinger was extremely helpful and a great chemistry professor. JCJC also adequately prepared me to transfer to a university.
I enjoyed many things about my time at Jones County Junior College. One of them is the student life there and how involved administration is with the students. We are truly cared for. However, there are many things I would like to see changed pertaining to the business side of things. It isn't always about what's best for the students in that aspect.
