4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: I am sure like many, College students love to try new things. Being able to have a variety of choices near campus helps in that department. Also, getting discounts by showing your college ID is a plus.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: Locations are convenient for students: near campus site or even walking distance from school, transportation, food/clothing shops. Pricing is reasonable for students (payment plan included). Surveys are available to find the perfect roommate, if you are in need of one.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: Peer groups and Counseling is provided for those who may feel unsafe or had been victims of certain crimes. Students are able to feel welcome and know they are not alone when it comes to situations as such.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life helps bring together students from different races/backgrounds and with different lifestyles. This is a form of communication throughout the school that way students do not feel left out of anything; they feel more like family.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The Professors who have been there are a while are great. The new Professors are great too. If a student want to know the honest truth about a Professor before adding a class. The best advice would be go to ratemyprofessor.com. That site has never let me down.

Overall Experience: I am pretty sure I will be getting a job with my John Jay degree when I graduate.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The college is in the city, so prices do reflect that. However, they have local pizza shops and deli's that are reasonable. My favorite food near John Jay is Boston Market. A bit pricey, but very tasty.

4 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: The guys are great. It depends on the individual and what he/she is looking for to judge an individual. I never encountered anyone that was a concern or issue.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: It is super easy. It a change of major form that is easy to fill out. Once submitted one will get an e-mail informing the student of all the job opportunities. Also will keep student informed of all events for major. The staff are very welcoming.

5 Recent Alumnus

Majors: I enjoy being a English major student. You have students one will see often because of the common major. Also friendships are build with other students and staff because of the major.

5 Recent Alumnus

Health & Safety: It's a Criminal Justice College, so security is the least of the students worries.

4 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: Had a few as classmates. They were super cool and always trying to get me to go to events.

Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Never went to any parties. I am and will always be into my books.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid process is okay. What they do not tell you if your check disbursement is late students can apply for a book advance. The book advance is $250 for each class. The money helps until ones check is disbursed.

Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: The Greek life is very hush hush. Those who are in fraternity or sorority do not allow people to know how to get in. This is because it's a secret life.

5 Recent Alumnus

Academics: I love it! Always things going on during community hour for English majors.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: Depending on the major of a student the workload can be heavy. As a English major the workload is out a lot. Mainly because you must read many books and write many papers. Overall, with time management it is possible.
