I assisted a teacher this spring in labeling the campus trees for her environmental lab class. It was fun. The campus grounds are very well maintained. You can see the care and variety. Biology Dept is the best with hard working friendly staff.

DO NOT GO TO THIS SCHOOL! This is the worst junior "college" in the history of education! The financial aid office is run by students paid minimum wage, and the professors are abysmal! Cynthia Gaddis was by far the worst of all! She "forgot" to adjust the grades weights, CAUSING HALF HER CLASS TO FAIL ON THE FINAL DAY! TJC cant even hire competent professors, what makes you think they know remotely anything about eduction. Go literally ANYWHERE else!

Very beautiful campus, but International Student’s advisor services is terrible, I have to say that they do not know what they are doing, one person tells me to do this, the other person says it is not right to do that. very nosy, asks me a bunch of my personal questions and make me feel like I’m a burden to them. They actually run students away.
