SUNY Jefferson Community College Reviews
Overall I enjoyed my experience at Jefferson Community College and felt I learned a lot. The professors were all very helpful for the most part and made themselves available if I needed extra help. The campus is clean, and easy to navigate as well. Throughout my time at JCC the campus also provided several student activities and opportunities to meet new people. Personally I also really liked the food served at the corner cafe. For anyone looking to begin their higher education experience at a good price, and looking to stay local in the area, I would definitely recommend JCC.
The food is terrible, they employ some students who do not cook well and are known to be very dirty (hygiene and cooking area). We are always bored in the dorms because Campus Activities doesn't do so well in the entertainment field. Rooms are nice and modern. Residential Directors, Security and the Dean of Students are awesome, they are helpful, understanding. They remember how it is to be a college student and are there for you. The Professors are cool, occasionally you'll get one that is a complete ass, but that's rare. You are able to message and even text your professors and they will respond immediately, or the next morning. BEWARE: some professors do not tell you if they don't use Blackboard. If you are a joint admission major (Jefferson to Potsdam/Keuka/Empire/Oswego, etc), be wary that some or most of your credits will not transfer. You yourself must call those colleges and find out.
When I first arrived at Jefferson Community College, I didn't know what to expect. But in reality, I was so accustomed to the high school that I graduated from Lowville Academy Central School, that I was afraid of what is to come in my future. During my first semester at JCC, I asked my professors about myself getting extended time for exams. This is because I have a learning disability. They were understandable and gave me the extra time that I needed to take their exams. My peers at JCC were helpful and explained to me what JCC is all about. This school is the best decision that I ever made toward my educational goals.
