What is your overall opinion of this school?

Every program and every individual has to abide by the same rules. I do wish that the dress code was program specific though. It is an accelerated course which is nice and quick, keeps your mind focused. All faculty is there to help and the students become a tight knit group of people.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The college overall is sufficient. I had issues in the past that forced me to quit my schooling, but I was able to clear things up and went back. The facilitator of my class seems to be unsure of the material and I have had to correct him by referencing the text book. I believe there could be improvements to the curriculum to make it more interesting than just looking at a power point the whole session. It is sufficient to learn the material, but very boring, for lack of a better term.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could give my high school self advice, I would tell myself to pay attention in my math classes because you actually do need to know this material! I would also tell myself to change my study habits because studying plays a huge role in college. The last piece of advice I would give myself is do not slack off! Once you slack off, it is extremely hard to get back on your game because college instructors are not anywhere as lenient as high school teachers.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The only aspect I dislike about my school is that a lot of the credits are not transferrable.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The degrees in the fields given, which puts the students at more of an advantrage of others in their field of study with just a certificate.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Start school earlier! You have so much you can do with your life, and never give up. You're going to go through drastic changes and remember to keep your head up and stay focused on your goal. Do not stress out on the little things in your life because in a few years it will not even have really mattered.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The accelerated programs allow you to transfer to a university and it only takes 14 months.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Take any advice your teachers give you, seriously, apply for as many scholarships as you may think you may qualify for, and enjoy your last year as a minor. Don't goof off and do things you'll regret, but maintain the good grades and enjoy your last year of high school. Adult world isn't as easy as you think it will be. It is costly and can be stressful. Yes college is going to be fun, but it is the real world, time to focus on your dream career.

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

I wish I could've gotten scholarships before attending the school, it is pricey, but I wouldn't change my decision. I love this school.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If i had the chance to go back in time to my high school senior year i would honestly tell myself to pay attention more in class. i would tell myself how college is more mature than what im doing in high school. i would also tell myself to get better grades and convince myself to go to sjvc. i would tell myself how college life is more responsible and a bit more difficult than high school. i would tell myself to not get influenced by the negative people surrounding me, enjoy my last year of high school with friends , and be more involved in school. Once high school is over all your friends leave and you won't be able to see them like you do in high school. i would definaly tell myself to apply for scholerships, i had the oppertunity to sign up and i didn't take the chance for goofing off my last year. i would tell myself to not give up in school and keep moving foward no matter what school plays a big role in life.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Threw out the whole time i have been attending sjvc from Augest 2013 to now there is nothing bad to say about my school. I absolutely love it there. From the frist time i steped in sjvc i fell in love how the school acidemic records are, class hours, small amount of students in each class, and much more. i do recomend people to go to sjvc rather than any other private college. i feel like family at sjvc, everyone helps you and work together to make you successful in life. SJVC is a very profecinal school i love it.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

I believe anyone is welcome to attend sjvc who is trying to make their life into a career they want. i don't like to judge who does and doesn't deserve to attend everyone is different and has their own person reasons why they choose to attend sjvc. i believe people who attend sjvc it's a personal choose, and know what they are getting theirself into. sjvc is a amazeing place to learn and reach your goals, there is a varity of age starting at 17 and older who attend sjvc, its never to late.
