I've really enjoyed my time at Paris Junior College. Although it is a two-year school, there are plenty of student functions and activities to attend. The professors and teachers at PJC help you succeed and want you to do well. With the small student-to-teacher ratio, they are very understanding and more than happy for one-on-one help after class. Paris Junior College is a great way to be set up for success!

Overall, it was a good start to college, but it could have been better. Some of the core classes, particularly the computer class, was very lacking. Not all of the professors were easy to understand. I would not recommend taking a online class unless you are confident in that subject, or have an understanding of how the online system works. You really have to push the professors to communicate with you and mistakes are common. However, if you find something that is incorrect they will fix it.
Paris Junior College is a wonderful 2 year school to kick off your college degree. It's cheaper than a 4 year university and the teachers are great. Ms. Anderson at the Greenville campus is the best teacher there! She's so passionate about science/biology and has so much knowledge to share. I recommend taking all of the science classes offered by her if you're a science major.
