The best thing about Jamestown Community College was the relationships formed between both students and professors in small-class environments. Professors were always easygoing and took notice of good work, often going beyond their duties and providing learning opportunities for students through internships and other work-related experiences. The professors were upbeat and passionate about the material, making it very exciting to learn, especially in my field of media production in which I was able to participate in two marketing/videographer internships my sophomore year. The student body as well was relaxed, friendly, and very determined to achieve their goals. On-campus housing was excellent, with freshmen living in townhouse-styled residence halls complete with a kitchen, living room, single bedrooms, and dual bathrooms you'd typically only see of juniors or seniors at state-level schools. The lack of a decent internet connection however made late night research papers and Netflix sessions very infuriating for many students. The cafeteria food was great however very limited in diversity. My biggest pet-peeve with the cafe was the soggy fries. I swear to this day, they throw your fries into the fryer for a minute at most and call it a day. I've probably gone on a rant about those at least 30 times now. I can't say anything to the staff there because they're just too nice! But as long as the chicken tenders are good, I'm satisfied because that's all I need to get through the day. Jamestown Community College is a wonderful place to begin for an individual to begin college. Between the great friends you make and share experiences with as well as the energetic and passionate professors whose goal is to set you up on the path to your dreams, you'll never regret coming to JCC... ...and the chicken tenders are pretty good too.

Brian

I think it is one of the best values for the dollar. The faculty and staff are knowledgeable and very accommodating. The lessons learned here will carry on through life.

CHARLES

I'm really enjoying the school so far. I like being in the dorms because I'm on campus and know everything that's going on, the students are friendly and the staff was extremely helpful and accommodating during registration. This is not my first college experience, but it is the best so far. The campus is small and intimate and I think I'm going to do well here.

Jacob

I chose this school because of the opportunity the basketball coach has given me to be a part of his team. So in the sense of sports and the opportunities that lie here are very good. Academically, the classes are smaller in size due to it being a community college. These are a couple of things that I looked for in my college search. This school is very good for someone that is coming to learn, personally grow, and achieve what they want. Do not come here looking for a vacation.

Math is important and is important in college, and everyday life. I hear the future say its my time to shine and do what is needed to get the best education.

  5. What's unique about your campus?

    College is a place where you can extend your knowledge to be successful in everyday life. College prepares you for what is to come in the future, and is a place to get you started. The best thing about JCC is the education, even though its a cheaper school I belive that everyone gets the same education no matter where you go to school. I believe this is the best thing because education is the reason we go to college in the first place and learning is the basis to everyday life.

  6. What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

    The college I attend did come with some suprises I wished I known before I came. The education is a little different than what it was in high school as college does not just hand work out to you. I found this to be more of a reponsibility issue than a surprise. On the other hand high school was just give and take which did not really prepare kids to develop that responsibility. We learn more by looking for the answer to a question and not finding it than we do from learning the answer itself.
