4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: John Jay is a college full of many activities you would expect from a college. There are many programs you can join such as John Jay Ace to improve academics, or clubs. There are even free tutors available by walk in or appointment! I wouldn't choose another school because its close to the subway and I can go to Columbus circle and shop or walk central park if I wanted too, but I enjoy the air conditioning and the comfortable cushion seats while on my laptop.

Overall Experience: My Overall Experience at John Jay is phenomenal. The main factor being that the school's very own diversity brings a cultural rainbow of different experiences and people. The opportunities and the internships announced almost 24/7 allows the students to venture out and gain knowledge. If I could do it all over again I would stick with this school because I have grown more in character and as a mature individual all thanks yo my school.

The college is dedicated to promoting criminal justice and I believe that so far, with my experience as a student there, the college has been incredibly efficient in its efforts. The college sets flexible boundaries that most students find appealing and noteworthy. Overall, John Jay is a great college.

Overall Experience: My school is unique because of its common good curriculum. It advocates for justice in today's world through the classes offered, the programs run, and the many outside activities it holds. It is also a very positive environment, full of diversity and a will to learn more and continue to improve. It is a closely knit family as well, another reason why I am so satisfied with my college choice.

Off-Campus Housing: Living in one of the most expensive cities majority of the undergraduate students live with their parents. However, housing is extremely expensive in New York. It is quite normal for commuter students to live with their parents until they save enough and most of the time it is after graduation.

Party Scene: The party scene in my school was great. For my first year all the campus clubs hosted their own parties. I believe I attended all of them. But, once you experience it, you want to experience the club life in the city. Which the club life overshadows the party scene in my school.

Off-Campus Dining: All my food I buy when I'm on campus is off campus. Having college right in the middle of the city is a bonus. You have every type of food imaginable. From fast food to your local diners. Great prices and great locations.

Administration: The safety officers are literally just there. They are usually in there posts, and they are very kind when you need assistance. Other then that I do not see the safety officers that often.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is decent when you don't want to go outside. However the prices for food are as expensive as eating fast food everyday. And the quality is a hit or miss. You never know what they are serving until you check it out. The cheapest thing to buy is pizza. Which is not that bad.

Scholarships: Financial aid in John Jay is such a headache. If you are missing documents pertaining to your financial aid they do not notify you until a few days before hand. Also with changes towards your financial make it impossible to know those changes were made unless you are constantly going to the financial aid office. They really need better methods in notifying there students.

Campus Housing: I am a commuter student therefore I do not need housing. Besides if I were to have housing it's not on campus in a separate location in the city. Since majority of the students are commuting it would be nice if the college provided metro cards or a discount. The college has the money for it.

Scholarships: The financial aid office doesn't inform people of missing documents until the actual tuition payment is due, and that's also when they include a surcharge fee of 15$ for every day that the payment is late. It's absolutely frustrating.

Party Scene: I hear it's all worth the fun.

Administration: It is all to ensure safety for everyone
