Joliet Junior College has honestly been an amazing school. I think so many people stray away from JJC because it is a junior college, but there are so many benefits to starting here:

1. I got to take many different classes at an affordable price to change my perspective on various fields.

2. All of my teachers were so helpful... and I've had plenty of different teachers, being that I have been attending JJC for 4 years.

3. From the career counselors, to the bookstore employees, to the veterans resource center employees, even to the college cafe, the employees of JJC are so helpful and are truly compassionate about what they do.

4. FLEXIBILITY! I have attended JJC through high school (AP classes), military training (they offer an excellent variety of online and hybrid classes), and working full time at my current job (great variety in class times and locations).

This is just a wonderful place. I am transferring next year and I will miss JJC and all it has to offer.

Over all Joliet Junior College is an average school. The campus is beautiful and always improving. The students there really just mind their own business and are really focused on getting through the classes. I have made a few friends there but since everyone is more reserved its hard to communicate with people. Joliet Junior college does provide lots of resources for students to achieve their goals. The one thing that I would say is horrible is the actual staff. Most of the professors I got were not helpful. Two of them were so difficult to understand due to language barriers. Another passed everyone in the class. Another did not teach at all and would make us watch videos. I am not trying to blame the teachers for poor grades on students because if you work hard you can pass, but I believe that since we are paying to get a good education, the least they could do is hire well enough professors.
Choosing the right teachers and right classes is incredibly easy! This technologically advanced college has given me nothing negative to say about it other than it doesn't have a football team. I have a 3.5 GPA and all my classes were very easy thanks to the wonderful tutoring center and my amazing professors.
