“John Jay is a unique institution. It’s a place where everyone—first-generation students, working students, immigrants, parents, and veterans—can transform their lives with a justice-focused education.” —President Karol V. Mason

On November 18, John Jay held its Fall 2018 open house for prospective students. With campus tours, workshops, and welcome sessions, this event provided future students with the chance to learn more about our College. “John Jay is a unique institution. It’s a place where everyone—first-generation students, working students, immigrants, parents, and veterans—can transform their lives with a justice-focused education,” said President Karol V. Mason. “Today, you’ll get a clear sense of how this campus is alive with energy and passion. I am confident that you’ll be impressed and discover that John Jay is the right place for you.” Offering students the chance to speak with faculty who are committed to excellence; learn about various academic programs; and find out why John Jay’s student-life experience has been rated among the best in CUNY, the prospective students at Open House left with a complete understanding of why John Jay students proudly call themselves fierce advocates for justice. At the event, we spoke with several future students and asked them, Why John Jay?

“I was looking at a lot of schools, but I liked John Jay because of its programs. John Jay is the only college with a major that only says ‘Cybersecurity.’ The majors at other colleges say something like ‘Computer Science,’ and that’s not what I want to do.
