The advisors aren't as helpful or involved as the ones in my previous school so I am a bit biased. But with the except of one professor, all of my other professors are very engaging and interested in the topic they teach. It makes the course less monotonous. I like the New Building a lot. North Hall was stuffy and had poor ventilation as did Westport. I think they cater a lot to adult learners and to those who only have late afternoon or evening availability which has been especially great for me. I also think that they are very accessible as far as commuting to and fro your home, work, etc.

It is pretty decent. There are a lot of people that are there and accessible to you if you need help. You can always try to get along with people pretty fast in John Jay, but same could be said about many colleges.

I chose John Jay because of the diversity and community that it has created within the city life. I love being around different ethnicities and cultures. It helps expand ones perspective.
