Honestly, it’s not a bad college to attend. Like every freshemen, it is a hard adjustment but they give you the resources to get into a groove of things. The people here are really polite and inclusive. You won’t feel left out unless you separate yourself from others. Some professors are better than others but not all of them are bad.

Seda - 12/15/2020

Jefferson East Falls is a place that gives you a warm hug each time you step on campus. It's a small school, so you tend to build a second family pretty quickly. The class sizes are small, so you get to have a personal connection with your professors. The dorms aren't bad, and some of them are actually pretty nice. The campus is small, park-like, and beautiful. I always feel safe, even alone at night. Even though we are small, sports are still taken seriously, as well as academics. Overall, amazing school.

Rebecca - 05/18/2020

I originally attended Philadelphia University, which was later bought out by Thomas Jefferson. So I might be bias, because in many ways I was robbed of the education I thought I was getting. However, even with this in mind the professors are amazing. In four years I only ever disliked one educator, and everyone else , even those who thought subjects I did not like, or had views I don't agree with were simply amazing people. The school values very particular and rare things in it's education of students. Their Hallmarks program emphasized empathy, citizenship, and teamwork in ways I don't think many other schools do. Coarse objectives were things like "empathy for those different then yourself" or "cultural understanding". This was what made my education so singular and exceptional- I was enriched by the demands of my professors and the subjects they thought, and my world view was expanded in ways I would have assumed could only be reached by travel. While the campus was beautiful, housing is subpar. Buildings are poorly maintained and often uncleaned, and while that's acceptable in many ways the school is too expensive to excuse this. Since the merger, administration has become much less helpful. Everything Thomas Jefferson does is very impersonal, and finding the right person to help you is a challenge.

Jordan - 01/07/2020

TJU has its pros and its cons like every other school. The campus life is exciting, the housing is not bad, and there are plenty of opportunities. However, I have run into some issues when needing assistance with technology, accessing online textbooks, my grades, and other matters. Nonetheless, I am proud to be a Jefferson Ram.

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

    If I could go back in time and tell myself about college I would say picking the college that I want to go to is the most important part of planning my future college life. I would tell myself to be prepared to grow up very fast because when I am in college I am by myself. The professors do not care if I do not make it to class it is my responsiblity to make it to class everyday. I would also tell myself that I need to start working on my organizational skills now instead of my freshman year in college. Organization is key to getting through college. Friends are non existent at least for my first year in college. I will be extremely busy with papers and academic activities that I will not have much of a social life. One last thing I would want to tell myslef is that it is going to be very hard and sometimes I might want to give up but I should continue to push myself because having my degree and working in a profession that I love is completely worth it in the end.

  12. What kind of person should not attend this school?

    Someone that does not know what they want to do in life and what career path they want to follow. Students that are not serious about school would not be good for this program because it is set up so that if a student is to fail one course they will have to start the program over the following year from the beginning and their financial aid will not be reimbursed. This means that the student must stay focused and have a very positive attitude because obtaining a nursing degree is completely different than obtaining any other type of degree.
