JJS serves individuals who are planning on attending Miramar College or see it as an option for post-secondary education; it also serves as a great opportunity for friends and families to learn more about the college, either to become students themselves, or how they can learn to better support their incoming students. JJS activities include presentations from Miramar staff, administrators and faculty regarding Miramar College, as well as workshops on specific topics like Financial Aid, transferring, student life, and enrollment services. In addition, an Information Fair is scheduled during JJS featuring student services and academic departments.
