Jackson College is a great school to start off at before transferring to a four year university. My favorite aspect of Jackson College is its diversity and the welcoming atmosphere towards all of its students. The staff is great and always very helpful, each professor works in their student's best interests. The administration does everything they can to see all of the students succeed and make one's college experience as smooth as possible. The hand written acceptance letter I was mailed showed me even before attending that the school cares very highly for their students and having a personal relationship with them. Jackson College is a great school and I recommend it to everyone I know who is struggling to decide what college to attend, it is cheap, most classes transfer easily, and provides a great education.

The topics in all but two of my courses actually fit the catalogue description and were straight forward. 3 of my other classes were not at all what the course was described as and were paper/project heavy along with very long and hard to follow power point presentations. I only had two instructors that I had issues with on a personal level but was able to put my dislike aside and do well in their courses. The way the professors teach are so scattered across the spectrum it's hard to really discuss style. Some are all lecture and tests. Others are more participation and interactive projects/in class activities. They are use very expensive books and only cover a few of the chapters which makes the courses hard to use knowledge wise for your up coming courses that will require material that was supposed to be covered in the earlier courses. Class sizes are very small which is nice, however; very few instructors/professors actually keep their office hours and always rush you if you have questions after class.

It is hard to have an actual major at this school as the catalogue of classes changes yearly as do the class requirements, also if 30 yrs ago you attended there and were in a special course which required that courses be continually repeated they are counted against you even if they were not graded and were on scholarship and not Federal or State financial aid. Classes also from then no longer count towards meeting your major's criteria because they are considered outdated, although basics such as Algebra have not changed in how the problems are solved in basic concept, so one had to retake the courses prior to where they left off which adds to cost and cuts Financial Aid for future semesters causing one to take out student loans in order to graduate with even a General Studies Degree.
