JCCC works to bring the best events, activities and performances to campus – all to educate and connect with our community. Whether you’re a current Cavalier, a future student or a neighbor, we offer informational and entertaining opportunities for everyone.
Academic Campus Visit Events
Academic campus visit events are tailored to students interested in a particular JCCC program or area of study. These 90-minute sessions provide an informative look at several career paths within specific industries. During their visits, students will get a taste of life as a Cavalier with a tour of our state-of-the art facilities and an opportunity to meet with knowledgeable faculty. We have several interesting sessions coming up; an RSVP is required:
Fine Arts, Photography and Film – Wednesday, April 13
Accounting – Tuesday, April 26
Theatre – Wednesday, April 27
We’re gearing up for commencement by hosting a Graduation Fair to prepare for the celebration. At this two-day event, JCCC graduates can purchase discounted regalia bundles, try-on gowns, participate in photo/video booth activities and more. Graduates can also tie up any loose ends and meet with campus representatives from Financial Aid, Veteran & Military Student Services and the Career Development Center.
Be sure to mark your calendars for Friday, May 20 with our 2022 Commencement Ceremony details. We’re holding two ceremonies, Associate of Applied Science degree and certificate candidates start at 4 p.m., and Associate of Arts, Associate of Science or Associate of General Studies candidates start at 7:30 p.m. It’s been two years since we’ve been able to celebrate our graduates in person. We can’t wait to watch the members of the class of 2022 walk across the stage!
