WHAT I LIKED

John Jay College of Criminal Justice is a higher education institution that offers a student a great deal of versatility when it comes to the criminal justice field. I fully enjoyed pursuing my degree at this college and I recommend it to any student looking to get involved in the law enforcement field.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Being that this college is in New York City, I did not enjoy the traffic and hours spent commuting to and from the city.

WHAT I LIKED

Every professor that I have had at John Jay College was very knowledgable, open, and genuinely cared for their students. I had a wonderful experience throughout my years as an undergrad and would highly recommend anyone to this School. You will not be disappointed.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

I did not enjoy my commute to John Jay, and I especially did not like the area it was located in.

WHAT I LIKED

I enjoyed my time as an undergraduate at John Jay College. Some of the professors knew their material and how to teach it to the student body. The number one problem I had with the college was the wifi. The wifi for students is not stable so you have to find a way to get the teachers' wifi password (not the well either but better).

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

If you are a transfer student be ready to advocate for yourself because John Jay tends to leave you in the dust to figure it out yourself.

WHAT I LIKED

I attended several other colleges and can honestly state that none of them provided me with a better education than John Jay. The school and teachers always reach out with a variety of financial, academic, and mental options, demonstrating that they cared about all of the students' and my overall health and education.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Going to school in New York City is an adjustment in itself if you are not residing there, especially coming from a different state or region of the world which is the only thing to be aware of, but definitely do not be discouraged because the school and its students are very supportive.
