"As a student you have to stay on top of everything. The John Jay Express or a.k.a One stop is horrible no one knows anything. They are always giving out the wrong information. The way I see this college is "the right hand does not know what the left hand is doing and the buttocks is still dirty." The Public Protection Management Director is clueless only help out those students that he is very cool with, most females and struggling student he will not even answer his email. His Department is unorganized and not caring for the students they have. They do not give two cent if you make it or not. The so call Blackboard which where students go for online classes never works and is very confusing. Got a complaint? Forget it because no one know where to send you. The best place to do is to the Dean of Students and even that department is lacking. You have better luck asking people out of the college what to do or where to go for help. I am totally disgusted with the college "Professional Treatment.""

"Tell us about your college experience.Even though I wish I had went away to school, I did enjoy John Jay College! I joined clubs and became an active student So my experience was great and fulfilling.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?Yes I would because I love what I learned about which is the psyche of Adolescent Offenders. Only thing I would change is that I would have done the 5year program they offered so I could get my Masters and Bachelors in 5yrs.What advice can you offer other students?I found that I performed better in school when I didnt have a job. My senior year i focused strictly on school work and I had and A in ever class! and was able to spread out my classes so i have breaks in between to study or not be as stressed during mid terms and finals. So my advice is if you can afford it, try to stay home with your patents as long as possible and just focus on your classes so you can perform to the best of your ability!"

"Tell us about your college experience.My college experience was a very fun one. Right in Manhattan, all of my friends were there, did a lot of cool things and learned a lot about my field and myself in the process.Would you get the same degree if you could start over?I would choose the same degree, I have a very fulfilling career now with much room for promotions and possibly working for federal agencies.What advice can you offer other students?Try your best to keep your debt to a minimum. It is sad to say but "you can be anything you want to be" isn't exactly a term that is feasible anymore."
