Student at This School - Grad Year 2013

Overall Rating

Jefferson college is like many community colleges. It has allowed me so far to get an education and at the same time still be flexible enough for me to work some during school as well. I have had a few good teachers these past two years who have really made me enjoy some of my classes. This type of school is great for someone who wants to get their general courses out of the way without breaking the bank. If I were to encourage anything too students considering this school it would be to use all of the great student resources on campus.
