Jones County Junior college, what can I say ? AMAZING ! The atmosphere, the environment, the people, and of course the many choices of degrees to lead you on the path to your dream career. From peers to professors you can always find a smile on their faces accompanied by a helping hand. The teachers and falculty at JCJC aim to provide all the recourses a student needs to succeed. Sports are a big deal at our school and you can find everyone supporting our Wildcats in the stands every game night. We have a diverse range of food options including “the Grill”, where you can get yourself a tasty burger and homemade southern dishes. We have many groups and organizations that make our school a top notch college of South Mississippi !

I've had a good high school experience. I have enjoyed my experience on the varsity soccer team perhaps the most. I learned how to operate as a part of a team and how to cope with success as well as disappointments. I have met coaches and fellow players whom I will treasure as friends for the rest of my life. I feel like there could be some improvements in the area of college readiness, however.
Attending Jones was a great experience. The food is good, the professors are understanding, and the school is affordable. There is, however, limited parking space.
