Will learn a lot
I plan to take on a course in Culinary Arts. I have taken a tour of the faculities that this class has to offer and I was very saticfied.
Will enjoy being here
The people at this college seemed to me realy nice and helpful. The teachers are patient with students and are willing to go the extra mile to teach all that they can; for what I can tell.
Tips for prospective students
Take a tour as soon as possible and get as much info as you can during your Junior year of High School. Start applying for finantial aid of all kinds.

Am learning a lot
I am finding that I learn more here than when I was in high school. While in high school so many of your peers don't want to be in school, therefore they disrupt and cause distractions. Here at Jones the atmosphere is different. Majority of Professors understand the need to be open with their students on a personal level in order to spark enthusiasm in learning about the given topic. This ability allows for a better overall college experience. I hope to see those of you applying in the fall. Good Luck.
Am enjoying being here
I enjoy being here a lot more than I enjoyed the monotony of high school. Classes aren't stretched out and boring, most are quite intriguing and leave one with a surplus of knowledge. The ability to create your own schedule also gives the student the freedom to choose what days they get to have a break.
Bang for the buck
The reasonably priced tuition allows for more students who would normally fall into the non-collegiate educated category to obtain a valuable and life long educational oppurtunity which will enrich their lives with better oppurtunities.
Tips for prospective students
When making your class choices, remember not to overwhelm yourself because once you're here you'll find so many other great things to explore. For instance you could take a walk around the campus with friends, check out the band in the Fine Arts Building, catch a Baptist Student Union Service, chill in the BSU's all-new coffee shop, warm up with a hoodie from the bookstore, grab a bite to eat at the Sub Connection, take a few laps around the pool, or surf the net with free Wi-Fi offered all over the majority of the campus. And for those interested in sports, are you in for a treat. The football team is always looking for new and exciting recruits, as well as the baseball and soccer teams.
Great for these types of students
Jones is great for any type of student really, whether you're the typical college student [straight out of high school] or what is considered a non-traditional student [someone not right out of high school]. The classes aren't so big that you get lost in the crowd, and your Professors make it a point to try and explain things in a manner which you can relate to. Overall learning here on campus is phenomenal.

Am learning a lot
So far my Criminal Justice teacher is awesome. He has been in law enforcement for over 20 years. All the instructors have enough experience to know what he/she is talking about. My Spanish 1 teacher's native language is actually Spanish.
Am enjoying being here
There is always something to do at JCJC. If not in class you can go to the free fitness center and work out or play racketball. You can go to the library and get online and just browse. There is always something to do.
Bang for the buck
The free fitness center, racketball court, basketball court, and free internet are good things to have for students on in class. The teachers I have don't just teacher, they interact with the class. My Spanish teacher gave my class a chance to get a free 100 for mid-term grades, just by spelling a word out by using the Spanish alphabet. My Criminal Justice teacher starts topics for the class to discuss, to see what our views were.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure you do your finacial aid done BEFORE dead lines, try to go to early registration so you can get all the classes you want, and get to the bookstore early for your books.

JCJC was a great experience and had wonderful well qualified teachers. The atmosphere is great, and the college is expanding with new buildings and opportunities every day. Jones is an amazing place to meet other students because everyone is close/friends there.
Tips for prospective students
A junior college is a great start because it is not a huge transition from high school; therefore, it will not overwhelm one. Associate with other students for advice with classes and teachers. Do your best and apply yourself.
Academic Rigor
Jones is a very qualified junior college in my opinion, and it prepares one for the future. The teachers expect one's full effort; however, they help guide students the best they can. I would not say Jones is too hard, but it is an academic challenge.
Dorm Life
I never stayed in a dormitory. From other friends opinions, dorm life was great. It allows other students to mingle.
Food and Dining
I loved the food at JCJC. They provided a wide variety of foods. The cafeteria had very friendly staff. Most importantly, to me, it was very clean and sanitary.
What to do for fun
I always attended sport events. Also, after class I went to the campus gym, tennis courts, basketball court, and several other amenities they offered.
Bang for the buck
College can be expensive. I believe my education at JCJC was worth the money. The worst was paying for books, but that is at any college.

Jones is a very beautiful and organized campus. Anyone would be lucky to be affiliated with such a brilliant school. The memories I made at the school will live forever.
Tips for prospective students
Take the time to meet the professors and administrators to make yourself known.
Academic Rigor
The level of difficulty of the classes are at a perfect level. The classes are compelling and a challenge. The possibility of a good grade can be achieved at a fair level of studying.
Dorm Life
The dorm life at Jones was the best two years of y life. I have never been so happy and felt so liberated before in my life.
Food and Dining
The cafeteria I believe was my overall favorite. The food was always fresh and the staff always so meticulous and caring.
What to do for fun
There are a number of activities offered throughout the semesters that are very fun. There are crawfish boils, breakfast for dinner, movie night on the lawn, and many many more.
Bang for the buck
The price of Jones is very reasonable and possible for almost anyone wishing to pursue education.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
One tradition that lived on in me is the breakfast at night to take a break from studying. During mid term and finals week the cafeteria serves a late dinner which is actually breakfast food to give all the studious students a break.
Great for these types of students
This school is great for all types of students. Shy or outgoing both would enjoy this campus.
Clubs and Activities
There are a number of clubs and activities that one can be a part of.
Greek Life
I am honestly not sure about the Greek Life.
Campus Safety
There are fabulous campus police officers that constantly day in and day out protect the campus and everything in and surrounding it.
