There will be more than 100 programs for prospective students and their families to see. Visitors should enter through the Campus Center (A-Building) so they can receive a map of the college. The map will help guide attendees through the Main Campus and show them where each program is located so that they can meet professors, ask questions, and visit classrooms.

In addition to programs, prospective students can also visit JJC resource centers – places where students can get help in order to achieve their goals at JJC. Resource centers include the Academic Skills Center, Career Services, Counseling, Financial Aid, the Library, the Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, the Office of Student Activities, the Honors Program, and more.
