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.
I like this college very much for the workers that are there and actually care for the students that want something in life, but there are many workers that just give an attitude off the bat and make one feel like they should not be there. This college over the years of being there has been a love/hate relationship. If it wasn't for the very FEW workers that are there and show how much they care I wouldn't have pushed myself to finish there and I am so happy I continued there.
