Johnson County Community College Top Questions

What is your overall opinion of this school?


The school has many merits. First of all, the instructors are top notch! Just because it's a community college, many people assume that the instruction will be of less quality than what you'd find at a 4-year school, but that couldn't be farther from the truth. Some of the professors concurrently teach at KU, K-State or Emporia, and the curriculum is the same. The resources at the library are pretty extensive, and are really easy to use. Having attended a 4-year school as well, I was rather impressed with it. Class sizes are small, which definitely help when you're taking a class like Organic Chemistry or Biology, where lectures in 4-year schools tend to hold 500 (or more) students. It's easier to ask questions and work together when class sizes are small. Another wonderful thing is that most of the buildings have covered walkways so during the cold wintry days you don't have to worry about facing the harsh weather.
