What is your overall opinion of this school?

St Johns River State College is the best State College I've ever seen. They are very reasonably priced even compared to the bigger local state college. I'm attending their college for the Radiology Program and I'm enjoying the freedom to take all my pre-reqs online. Sure with my medical classes, there is a Lab or two, but they let me know far in advance and was able to give my full time employer plenty of notice. This has really been a stress free experience and would recommend this college to my closest family and friends. You won't be disappointed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am dual enrolled with my high school, Orange Park High School, but I will be at this college full time next year. I’ve had professors but never on campus. But the program set up seems to be efficient, but the communication between the schools and the students could definitely use improvement.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SJRS is a very accessible and well managed campus. As a nervous first-time college student who has been out of high school for 6 years now, I found that the staff and environment were very welcoming and helpful. The tuition prices are fair however as always and anywhere the book prices are ridiculous. The course catalog is quite ranged however it is annoying how there is a like a separate arts school to the college that you must audition for. Like people have to have folios which is weird for someone just wanting to take a photography class or something and learn. Security is great and safety seems to be a great concern and mission for the college. They offer payment plans which are really helpful as well. I think their classrooms could be updated or at least some of them and they would also do well to have a larger computer lab. That said, roundabout, the college is a great place to get your higher education after high school started. It is also very convenient for many that there are three locations of the school spread out to cover several districts. However the one downside is that it is very annoying and inconvenient that some courses are only offered at specific locations which may very well be an hour away for some people. Like the arts school and its programs is in Palatka which is a 80 minute drive there and back for me. As a full time employee this is very undo-able for me and cuts too much time away from what could be used to take another class or studying. The campus I attend currently is only 10 minutes away from me currently which helps tremendously in terms of viability and motivation.

SJR is a good school for our town. It's nothing fancy but the teachers do their job well. The best part is the Viking center, its a great place to chill or study, there are lots of games and good cafe area. There is also free tutoring which is great if you need some extra help.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

St. John’s river state college is a great place to begin college, since it is a community college it allows you to save some money and transfer to a bigger university after you receive your AA degree. The student to profesor ratio is perfect. There are about 15-20 people in each classroom which allow the profesor to communicate with you and get to know you better, unlike in huge univirsities where you’re just a number

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The professors are really nice and helpful. They even found a great replacement professor when one of my professors went on maternity leave! I have not had that much experience with the actual campus, I am currently dual enrolled through my high school, but I have heard good things about the facilities available.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Saint Johns River State College is a community college with a lot to offer. With another community college in the same town, this particular school is very organized in comparison and strives to keeps it's students safety a priority. Class sizes are a healthy size that allows optimal learning with a more intimate class number (no more than 20, usually). Definitely a good choice for college if one cannot afford a 4-year institute right off the bat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a nice small college. Very relaxed. The staff are all nice and there are security officers constantly patrolling the campus. The teachers all care and want you to succeed. The student facilities aren't excessive. They have a nice student lounge area to hang out in between classes. Overall a very good college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

SJRSC is a pretty well-rounded college. They basically have something for everyone. They have FloArts, which is an art school that is loved and attened by many. There is also a heavy focus and involvement in baseball and softball, with both teams being very successful. For those not into the afts or sports, SJRSC is still a good option because it offers a wide variety of classes needed to transfer to another university, or you can also stay at SJRSC and get a Bachelors Degree. The class sizes are perfect, and the majority of the professors are easy to reach and very personable. The student life is also perfect for people who want to be involved, but do still want to keep their focus on the academics. Overall, SJRSC is a great option for people from all backgrounds.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Saint Johns is exactly what I wanted. Class sizes are small, professors are involved and dedicated, and administration seems to work tirelessly to get the students more resources. Best of all, tuition is incredibly cheap. Of course Saint Johns is basically a community college, so there is no housing and they only offer three, 4-year degrees (Nursing, Early Childhood Education, and Applied Science in Organizational Management). But the State of Florida guarantees admission to other Florida State Schools with an 2-year "Associate's of Arts" degree which is mostly what students receive at Saint Johns. One of the possible cons at Saint Johns is the grading scale, which doesn't have pluses or minuses. If you receive between a 69.995% and 79.994% average in a class then the grade is a C, not a C- or C+. This can be an issue when transferring to specific programs at other universities who may require a C+ prerequisite grade in order to take a class.
