An excellent place to grow. For City Colleges of Chicago, diversity and safety is important. It is a place where students can be with the guarantee that we are listened to. Richard J Daley College has support for all students, personally I use DAC support and the support I receive is of very high quality. It is a human institution where it does not matter where we come from or where we are going academically speaking, we are all important and we are listened to. Advisors support and listen to their students, no matter what the situation is, there will always be a department available to help. CCC has numerous scholarships, in addition to financial aid to make the expenses of the classes affordable. In conclusion, I recommend The Community Colleges of Chicago if your plan is to study a 2-year associate with excellent options to transfer to the university.

I overall enjoy the school, the professors are very helpful and willing to work with all the students. I rated it four because some of the advisor and financial aid advisors lack the patience in helping the students. They do not always thoroughly go through the students' profile and see exactly what they need. I know many students that were placed in classes that were not needed for their major or at all because the advisor did not check everything. This is crucial especially for freshman because they do not know what they are doing. Overall the professors make you feel like you can approach them about your school work and any doubt you have about school. They also give great advice on transferring school and scholarships.
Richard J. Daley College is a public, two-year community college in Chicago, one of the seven City Colleges of Chicago. The college was founded as William J. Bogan Junior College in 1960 and utilized classrooms in the evenings provided by William J. Bogan High School in the Ashburn neighborhood on the southwest side of Chicago, Illinois, United States. In 1970, the college moved to an interim campus, made of prefab buildings, in the West Lawn neighborhood at 7500 S. Pulaski Road, until the present campus was completed in 1981.
