For a community college it is a very inviting and friendly place to go for fresh out of high school students. The professors are all very friendly and work well with the students in helping them succeed in their classes. The campus isn't too large or too small to be crammed or to get lost in and the classes are just diverse enough to get any students attention in what the college has to offer.
Tips for prospective students
If you're ever lost just go to the nearest help desk (which can be located in every building) and they can direct you to the classroom that you're having a hard time finding. The professors are extremely helpful and friendly so don't be afraid to ask for help whenever you need it. I don't know how many times I've been saved thanks to my professors.
Academic Rigor
I don't care what anyone else says, the classes here are just as challenging as any state college. They can be frustrating at times, but not too much to keep you lost throughout the course material. I also haven't had one professor yet that I didn't understand or had a problem comprehending when listening to them in my classes.
Dorm Life
I don't live at the dorm, but from what I've heard it is quite pleasant. I've also heard it is peaceful and quiet and the students there are very friendly and easy to cooperate with. And from what I've seen, the dorm area is very clean and kept that way every day.
Food and Dining
The catering service is very delicious and has many choices of food. There is the pizza section, fried foods section, deli section, and the health food section. Each section has it's own cooks and each has it's own menus with a list of different foods to get ranging from cheeseburgers (I'd really recommend those) to chicken wraps to pepperoni pizza.
What to do for fun
While I haven't yet joined into any clubs I've heard and read on the many billboards located across campus that there are dozens of different clubs to join ranging from art, drama, pottery, reading groups, computer clubs, chess clubs, etc. Other than joining a club there is a pool hall for students to go to whenever they have free time to goof off.
Great for these types of students
San Juan College is a great place for fresh out of high school students, students looking from a break from big universities, and for older students looking to go back to school.
Campus Safety
The campus has it's own security and I've been told and noticed throughout my first year there that it is very peaceful and secure throughout the campus grounds. No one ever gets hurt, no fights ever break out, nothing out of the ordinary happens that could endanger anyone on campus while the few college officers patrol the grounds.

What I like the most at SJC is their on-line courses. These classes are nice because you can do the course at your pace. San Juan College is very big on student success and offers every avenue to help students with anything from homework to wonderful advisers. San Juan College also offers three campus locations for students which is a huge help.
Tips for prospective students
Ask questions! There is so many people at the college who are more than willing to help a student. The only way you will fail is if you don't seek the resources available to you.
Academic Rigor
If a student is serious about their degree than San Juan college is for you. The instructors have high demands in most classes however they are more than willing to help a student become successful as long as that student is willing to do so.
Dorm Life
My home is only twelve miles from the college so I have no experience with any dorms.
Food and Dining
San Juan college offers a bistro for coffee fanatics as well as a full cafeteria with a large variety of food choices.
What to do for fun
San Juan college is like my home away from home. They have very nice accommodation's to sit either quietly or a commons area where you can sit and chat with friends. The college every month has social gatherings for the student which is really nice to be involved.
Bang for the buck
A student can't go wrong with San Juan college. It is a very well established college and constantly buildings to further the students. It really is a beautiful college and inexpensive.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
San Juan college offers three campuses, the main campus, and two others for students that are looking for night classes or classes closer to their homes.
Great for these types of students
All of the resources available for any class one is taking.
Clubs and Activities
There are so many clubs and activites daily that it is hard to tell you about all of them. However I can say you wouldn't be bored!
Greek Life
Geek life is fun! I have several friends who are geeks and they bring fun to everyday life.
Campus Safety
Campus security officers are wonderful. They are easily accessible and you always see them walking around and they are very friendly.
