SUNY Jefferson Community College Reviews
I took a few classes online due to the coronavirus. I was unsure of how I would transition, but my professors were nothing but helpful and utilzed many tools to make our online experience fulfilling. We used Blackboard Collaborate to meet in our virtual classrooms and the student portal/e-mails to stay connected and up to date on everything. The only thing I would have liked to change is the amount of learning material that was posted on our class pages. Most of my professors were great about this idea, but a few posted more assignments than they did the material to learn about them. This did not hinder my learning experience in the class, but I often found it more difficult. Overall, the faculty and staff at Jefferson Community College did an amazing job, especially with some major adjustments and transitioning to online learning for the first time due to the coronavirus.
I liked that the campus was close to my residence as I could easily commute there. I also loved their 2 year psychology program and the professors who helped to guide me through my degree path. They were great professors with clear, extensive knowledge in their subjects, but also went beyond that to show a caring interest in their students and a helping hand for them as well. I would potentially change some of the methods in which few professors I have seen utilize to teach their classes. This method is not bad, but I would not say it is always completely effective either. It would depend on a student's preferable form of learning, but this method is often confined to a typical lecture. This leaves no room for creative minds to expand on what they are learning through the class. I think it would be more effective for professors to have students engage in more creative activities during class to interact and present the skills they have learned previously or are currently learning.
I really like the professors at the college, the faculty and staff are very helpful and are always willing to help you. Everyone is very polite and always willing to help and accommodate any student!
