I am a student who is pursuing four

Apr 22 2013Engineering Department
I am a student who is pursuing four associate's degrees with San Juan, and expects to graduate in 2013. The school is very well managed when it comes to expenses, and is one of the most inexpensive schools in the nation. However, it does not offer very sophisticated resources to its students and does not have a very active student body when it comes to extracurricular activities. The courses offered are diverse, and it is very easy to schedule classes with Fridays off of school. The website is fairly outdated, and registering for classes is annoyingly slow.

++It's great if you just want to get your basics out of the way, or if you are interested in learning a subject just for the sake of learning.

++They have great programs of nursing and anything involved with the oil field. The people I knew in the programs got work before they were done and seem to really know their stuff.

+They have a very good fine arts program there, some very talented and unique teachers. For the most part the teachers are pretty good especially if they know who you are.

-Don't expect SJC to equip you for the job. This is strictly education not training to fill a position. You should be spending as much time outside of class making connections and preparing yourself. If you count on them teaching you everything you need to know you are going to be disappointed.

To condense my review as simply as possible:

To condense my review as simply as possible: If this were a four year college, I would not even consider transferring.

pros-
challenging courses
knowledgeable professors
campus resources
tuition ($42 per credit hour!)
friendly administration
free parking
clean, and aesthetically pleasing campus
small classes
broad range of undergrad degrees
great facilities
cons-
lack of social organizations
commuter college (could be pro or con)
only offers 2 year degrees with the exception of a 4 year business degree
not a research institution
I previously attended the university of new mexico, and i invested a lot with little return. However, at SJC I have invested little (monetarily) and have received an unexpected enormous return!

Like I have previously stated, the most prevalent con is that this college isn't a four year institution and it isn't because of a lack of resources or administrative ability.
