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.

Jones was a great overall experience. They have a wonderful nursing and radiology program. The Agricultural department was where I spent most of my 2 years. The staff is always willing to help and the cost is low compared to other colleges or going straight to a university!
I just recently graduated this year from Jones County Junior College with an Associates of Arts degree. The professors and staff at Jones are absolutely amazing at their jobs. It is obvious that the professors are intelligent and passionate about the subjects that they teach. The location of the school is not the best for most. It is cornered away in the old historic town of Ellisville and surrounded by dense forests and historic buildings, most of which close early in the day. On the other hand, it is almost guaranteed that wherever you go in town, it will be a relatively short and safe walk. It is a wonderful school to start your education.
