“I chose JCC because of the location and having my desired degree programs in winery management/marketing and business administration. Once I graduate with my associate degrees, I want to continue my education with SUNY Potsdam through the Jefferson Higher Education Center (JHEC) at JCC. Since I will not have to travel to another campus, I will be able to keep my family life and work schedule the same without stressing.”Cara, JCC student and Tasting Room Manager at Coyote Moon Vineyards

“JCC prepared me to transfer to a four-year school in several ways. First and foremost, it helped me become a more independent and motivated student. Also, it helped get me ready for the rigor of future classes. Having small class sizes and a caring faculty at JCC made assimilating into a larger campus community much easier than if I would have gone to a four-year school right out of high school.”Jeff, JCC Alum and 4th Grade Teacher at Sackets Harbor
