Campus Life

Welcome Jaguars

Johnston Community College caters to all aspects of the student experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. Our campus offers a wide variety of experiences and support services to give students an opportunity to grow.

The mission of Student Activities is to promote intentional involvement, facilitate leadership development, and encourage student growth. We deepen the experience through enriching student organizations, offering transformative leadership programs, advising campus programming, and challenging and supporting student leaders. We work together with student organization advisors and campus/community partners to advance a student-centered co-curricular experience socially, culturally, academically, and mentally.

Whether participating in NJCAA intercollegiate athletics, using one of our many campus computer labs, or eating lunch in the Jaguar Grill, our students are finding their place at Johnston Community College
