"John Jay is as fun as you make it. Everyday the school has different activities dealing with justice and can really help when it comes to networking, Once you build that relationship, the staff are very nice and helpful and does not mind when dealing with the million and one questions you might have. Many resources to start you career. I love my time at John Jay and cannot wait to go back for my Graduate studies."

"I graduated from John Jay College of Criminal Justice in 2013 and I cannot envision myself graduating from another school. I would recommend John Jay College to any student who are interested in pursuing a degree in criminal justice or forensic psychology. There is a large variety of courses to choose from such as juvenile delinquency to sociology of violence. Some of the professors are very knowledge and try to work with you. The location is very convenient and commercial. Tuition is very affordable around 2k a semester."

"John Jay is a great school, especially if you are interested in the criminal justice field or want to make a change in the system. The professors are great and usually are in the field they are teaching so they can assist you with career options. There is great diversity in the school and the school tries to accommodate everyone."

"John Jay is a highly respected school. The programs are very flexible. I was able to take classes from different departments to personalize my program for my goal. I decided to become an addiction counselor midway through my program. I was still able to take drug and alcohol related classes within the psychology department but also ones with the criminal justice department (which happened to be taught by sociology and anthropology professors)."
