My experience at joliet junior college was pretty average! I was provided with the adequate classes I needed to transfer to a four year university. Professors were overall average, most were good, none were extraordinarily horrible or excellent. The only word of advice I would really give is to not completely trust the counselors! I had many bad experiences, eventually learned how to use the online guidance to see what classes I needed. My last semester there I finally found two counselors I could trust- Mr. Dutt and Ms. Kimberowski!

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.
For a great classroom atmosphere and affordable classes, this is s great college to attend. Great teachers and flexible class schedules! Convenient location and a well maintained campus.
