    I have found a chess club and a criminal justice club among the large variety of groups and organizations available at this college. Students should consider joining one.

    At first, I was not looking forward to being there- I thought it would be like an extension of high school, since many of the people from my high school would be attending JJC. However, I ended up having a great experience once I started getting involved in things and making friends! JJC also has a wide variety of clubs, which is great. I really enjoyed their theater club and being in some of the plays. Usually, parking is horrible. I remember arriving half an hour early at times, and still being late for class because of lack of parking. However, I do not think this will be a problem anymore because of the new buildings and parking lots they are adding.
