JCC Virtual Tours – Sheldon Center (Jamestown)


The Arts and Sciences Center is a
multi-purpose building that features classes in a wide variety of subjects. Physics students have an opportunity to
put their computations to the test in our physics lab. OTA students have
access to a fully equipped lab that they can use to receive hands-on
training. Here in our music department you’ll find
digital recording studios, rehearsal rooms, and a piano lab. Students
are able to participate in several credit-bearing ensembles, including choir, concert band, and both
jazz and rock ensembles. Also within the Arts and Sciences Center
we host a variety of internships for JCC students, some local like Chautauqua Institution and
some international such as locations in China and Spain,
where JCC students can intern as English language instructors.
The second floor of the Arts and Sciences Center is home to programs in the arts
and humanities, which include English, philosophy, and
foreign languages. It’s also where you’ll find the community cultural center, which
includes the Weeks Gallery and reception hall. The Weeks Gallery features a variety of
regional and national exhibitions, and each year the gallery
organizes a student art exhibit from which the
college selects a few pieces to purchase and share as part its permanent
collection. The Robert Lee Scharmann Theatre is used for concerts, major lectures, and
touring productions. JCC’s theatre troupe, the Uncommoners, use the
theater for two productions every year, a fall musical and a spring play. The theatre’s capacity to accommodate
seating for 400 people makes any event an enjoyable and
comfortable experience. On the third floor you’ll find
classrooms for the nursing department as well as a state-of-the-art nursing
lab, which give students a chance to work with the same equipment and software
programs used in many hospitals. To replicate the
experience of working with actual patients, students
get to practice their skills on sophisticated mannequins. The Arts and Sciences Center is a
multipurpose center offering an array of diverse experiences
and opportunities to JCC students. So whether your passion lies in the
healing or the performing arts, JCC’s Arts and Sciences Center has
everything you’ll need to help you realize your true calling.
