John Jay is a school where one might enters being ignorant about so many political, historical, and cultural movements, and once we start school we are completely immerse in the reality of our society where one is not longer in the shadows of what is happening. I am beyond grateful to have been a student there because the fight for social justice in the school is real, we become participant of the change that needs to be done in so many social structures and systems, and most importantly we become aware. The school has a great number of interesting academic routes, amazing professors, great facilities, and there is a lot of networking to be done with so many industries that work helping to change the justice system. This has been a well rounded school, with all the necessary assistance and programs for us leaders of the future.
John Jay College is a fascinating school to me. It has been my dream school that I’ve always wanted to attend. John Jay College provides me with so many career and academic opportunities for my future, which I didn’t know were out there until I was accepted into John Jay. From academic support, mental health counseling, clubs, career fairs, internships fairs and job opportunities, it reassures me to know how much support is available to me when I need it. I personally feel like it is a privilege to study at John Jay College because with all the professor’s and staff’s devotion and commitment to teaching us, making sure we are safe and providing us with a variety of support, I can guarantee my success rate in the real world will be at an all time high. Not only do the professors and students carry themselves in a professional manner, we all have fun learning, taking on challenges and working hard in every course, internship and program we take on.
it is a commuter school so everyone comes and goes as soon as classes end. There are only academic clubs and not enough lesuire based clubs. There is not a lot of social life in school. However there are many career based opportunities.
I do believe the school has some room for improvement but so far they have been keeping up with communications during this difficult time. I do believe that the faculty does push students to become more involved and connected with each other. I do enjoy my time so far and I can't wait till the year really kicks off

The worst thing for me about this school was I did not get to experience all of this campus had to offer. Thus, due to several factors: one being, one major and four minor surgeries during the attendance of 2012-2014 school years. Another, includes an acknowledgement of uncontrolled diabetes diagnose towards the ending classes of the BA studies. Finally, the last factor is the effect that these two factors above had on my studies GPA and the means for my supportive income, my NY CDL. The worst is I graduated but I believe I should have graduated with honors.
The best thing about John Jay College is the structure of the classes. This university caters to Police and Firefighters whos schedules fluctuates week to week. The majority of the classes at John Jay were structured so that you can take the same class with the same professor in the morning or evening. This suited my work schedules as there were many days that I had to work a late shift and in essence was able to take the morning class. The professors that instructed these classes were also very accomodating and helpful.
Anyone because what is studied here can help with almost any field.
John Jay College is a good school but the only problem is that the stair cases get too crowed when is time to change classes that people have to run to get to their next class and is sometimes hard when one class is on one street and the next class is like three streets down.
John Jay has great professors that really care about their students and their success. I believe I am a strong student and I love to learn, but if it weren't for the professors at John Jay (their passion and dedication to teaching), I wouldn't have done as well as I did.
This school is located in the center of Manhattan's rush hour. Though it delivers almost everything, travel is costly and often times long for the majority of students! The train station is nearby, therefore helpful, however the walk from the station to the college is about ten minutes. I wish I knew I'd need to leave my house two hours before class time!
This school is a criminal justice school so if you are into art and music this isn't the school for you.
The most frustrating thing would definitely be the tuition. Its tough paying rent while also having to find money to pay for school. New York City is so expensive!
The reputation and the professors. My school is significantly recognized in the Criminal Justice field and has professors that are well-known in their profession.
I tell them that some of my professors are seen on t.v dong documentaries or other stories in interviews.
My classmates are driven, passionate, and aware of the social injustices of this nation- they are open and willing to help and mentor their fellow classmates promoting social justice.
