Am learning a lot
All of the teachers are intelligent, caring individuals who truly care about their students' success and actively try to help you reach your goal. If you don't understand something, or simply need tutoring, they are always available, and will help you gain a better understanding of the material.
In General, most of the knowledge you gain will not only be a little easier than that of a 4-year college, but it will also be very useful for a prospective career or a future bachelor's degree

Am enjoying being here
JSR can at first be a little intimidating, and a little bit of a culture-shock to new students; it may take a little while to get used to the social scene, campus atmosphere, and classes, but once you get settled in, its okay. Once you meet people, get involved in an extracurricular outside of class, and get used to what you're taking, you'll find the place to be pretty charming, and you'll start to notice things you like about the campus, like its convenient location near Richmond, from your home, etc.
Bang for the buck
J. Sargeant Reynolds is very rewarding financially; if you don't have the funds to afford going to a 4-year school, you can go to JSR for one to two years, for HALF the price! You get all of the same classes you would take at your desired 4-year college, but at a more affordable rate and at a comfortable pace! You can also gain the necessary degree or skill set needed for a career of your choosing, all without breaking the bank!
Tips for prospective students
Take every opportunity you can at JSR; this is truly a place where you are the one who ultimately forms out the experience. If you don't put yourself out there and talk to people, participate in an extracurricular, or even check out a club you may never have joined before, you will be miserable here. But if you do all of the above and then some, you'll find JSR a much more enjoyable place! Who knows what could happen: you may meet some of your best friends here, and maybe learn something about yourself you may not have before. It all depends on you...
Great for these types of students
JSR can fit any type of student, really, but its especially great for any student who wishes to make a good start to their college experience, gain an understanding of and a jump-start to a desired career, and learn invaluable skills that will be useful in a job and in college, such as studying, making friendships, being independent and focused, and more outgoing. JSR is also great for people who want to ease their financial burden a little, while getting a quality education at the same time.
