LaMichelle is excited about starting her new job after graduation: "I am looking forward to putting my major to use. I like the location that I get to work in--the heart of the city in the downtown area of Chicago. With the help of the Career Development Center, I was able to do mock interviews and fix my resume. My professors gave me the necessary tools; they motivated and believed in me since day one. They always helped me with any questions I needed. They also gave me tips on classwork and on landing a job."
The school has a great atmosphere; everyone is very friendly and welcoming, especially the professors. The best thing about SJC is the faculty. The professors really care about you and want you to succeed.
The Core Program does seem a little strange at first, but it helps a great deal with writing and communication skills. I really like that I get the opportunity to do my major every semester I am here instead of having to take gen eds the first two years. The Core Program is what really helps for students to be able to start their major as a freshman.
SJC has a lot of clubs to choose from. There is a lot to do. If someone does not find a club that interests them, they can easily start up their own club. The clubs are student-run.
SJC does a lot with their Campus Ministry Program welcomes all faiths or non-faiths with open arms. They have many campus and off-campus opportunities for participation.
I have the Band Performance Scholarship, Kious-Waugh Grant (SJC Grant), and the SJC Scholarship. This school is very helpful when it comes to affordability.
