JJC students, employees and community members are welcome to work up a sweat in our fitness center in the G-Building. 

You can pick up your heart rate on a treadmill or other cardio equipment or show off your strength with weights.

Don’t worry about staying entertained while staying fit. Our fitness center has TVs with 60 satellite channels and 14 local stations. 

Our Fitness Center is also equipped with brand new locker rooms and showers!

Along Houbolt Road near the Edward Cwilko Lane exit is our state-of-the-art greenhouse, the first LEED-registered greenhouse at a U.S. community college.  

Not only is it a valuable educational tool for our horticulture program — among others — but a community resource as well! In September, the greenhouse has a fall mum sale, and for certain holidays, there are holiday arrangements and make-and-take kits available for purchase.

Laura A. Sprague Art Gallery

Immediately on the left through the J-Building entrance is the Laura A. Sprague Art Gallery, which hosts several receptions and shows each year. Featured artists include local and visiting artists and, of course, students.  

Our on-campus gallery provides students the opportunity to showcase their work and learn how to prepare an exhibit and gives our campus community a local gallery to visit and appreciate contemporary art, free of charge.
