Life @ JC Kota Kinabalu

At Jesselton College, we believe having a well-rounded education means being involved in meaningful off-campus activities. This includes sporting activities, social engagements, student trips, holiday plans and charity events.

Series of balanced activities are organized frequently which allow students to try a little bit of everything and find their interests. Participating in these activities is also a great way to become a part of the college community.

Aside from having fun, extra-curricular activities that improve one’s creative thinking, team building, improv and leadership are also organized.

Activities Highlights

Prom Night

Every year, students are given the opportunity to organize one of the highlight events of the year. Featuring different themes every time, it is a great social event involving students, staff and faculty members. Besides that, this event has always been a great opportunity for students to showcase their talents in various performing arts.

Talks and Seminars

Experienced guests are invited by Jesselton College for students to obtain firsthand insights in the art, media, event, banking and finance industries. Other talks and seminars are also conducted to educate and promote healthier lifestyle choices among students.


Healthy Body, Strong Mind. A balanced life will benefit students during their college experiences. For gym lovers, facilities are accessible within a few minutes walking distance from Jesselton College. Activities such as paintball, rock climbing and martial arts are also favourites among the students. Less adventurous sports  enthusiasts can join in badminton, table tennis and futsal sessions that are held commonly. Students are also encouraged to participate in charity runs, races and competition.


From self-defence to self-image building, special guests are invited to conduct workshops on certain specialization fields. Students get to learn extra skill sets aside from those acquired in classes. Hands-on  learning experiences will also help students acquire knowledge that will be useful to them throughout their post- college lives.

Industrial Visits

As vital part of their studies, students are brought to visit businesses in the retail, manufacturing and distribution industries. Students get insights on the working environment and conduct of everyday business operations as well as learn innovative business concepts. During their studies, students also have the opportunities to visit places of rich architectural and cultural heritage in Sabah.
