Johnson County Community College provides a wonderful environment for every person on campus. Inside the intimate campus of JCCC, contains everything a student could ask for, including computer labs, resource centers, cafeteria's, coffee bars, and even a museum. The thing I like the most about the school is that every single professor cares about the students and wants to get to know them. For any prospective student, use the resources given to you by the school and you will have no problem with achieving good grades.

It's nice that there is a community college around that has such high ratings. It's a big difference from your stereotypical community college. I just wish there were more opportunities to meet people.
