The staff that work in the financial aid office in the olean location are the only people you will encounter who are mean and unhelpful. They judge people on weather you come to the school with fasfa grants, scholarships. However this is an unfortunate first impression of the rest of the schools staff who are all down to earth, friendly and helpful. Still, I know someone who withdrew because they couldn't get past the rude remarks made by the people in the financial aid office, .I wanted to major in fine art at JCC.The Olean campus doesn't have a lot to offer. Honestly, most classes in the liberal arts subject area are just there to fill requirements for the nursing program. They really aren't interesting or fun in Olean. If you aren't a nursing student my advise is to take what you need to transfer, don't waste time taking class you don't need. I had one art teacher who took herself too seriously and made the class a great determent to everyone involved. She gave an insurmountable amount of assignments and homework which was weird and unexpected for an art class. The class expenses $300 +... she biasedly gave bad grades to students who lacked natural artistic talent or ability despite the fact they showed up to class and handed in the assignments. To me this was not a fair grading system and resulted in her losing about 20 of her students. Only about 5 or 6 students finished the class out of absolute necessity because they had exactly 12 credit hours and need to maintain full time status. Art major or not, she was a true nightmare for students who were wanting to transfer because she affected their scholarships. All the other professors were reasonable and helpful. I did have one English teacher that had us read and rank each others assignments barely ever reading them for himself. Ultimately if I had stayed away from the art class my GPA would be a lot higher.
