Jones County Junior College Reviews

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.

Jones County Junior College offers every person willing to work for their dreams an opportunity for education. Jones was not my first choice when selecting a college to attend; however, since attending Jones I have received a supportive, safe, affordable, and high quality education. This college also offers each student a free nurse, free counseling, online courses, night courses, multiple clubs, sports and activities to be involved in, and advisement for students all week. I will always be thankful for the many ways that the many employees of Jones has helped me to achieve my dreams at an affordable price.
Jones is a great way to save a lot of money and get your pre-reqs out of the way, but, like the rest of Jones County, there's nothing else all that special about it. A handful of instructors are outstanding (Moulds, Bradshaw, Bishop, and Joey Davis all come to mind). Others, though, are a nightmare to deal with, and occasionally I feel embarrassed for them for how little they know about their subjects.

Student life is nonexistent. If you don't play a sport and live in the dorms, you can forget it. This is understandable since JCJC is a junior college and not an actual university, but a lot of people come in with this weird notion that they're going to come to Jones, meet their best friends for life, and live happily ever after. This narrative is pushed by JCJC's faculty. True story: I sent an email to ten different club supervisors, trying to get involved, because I was having a hard time meeting people. All ten responded by telling me they don't meet, as there's no interest.
