Joliet Junior College has been a school that I've been in love with since my sophomore year of college. That feels like ages ago. Before attending my first semester (Fall 2020), I toured it four times and was allowed to sit in multiple different classes. The administration is so accepting of BIPOC and the LGBTQ+ community that it is almost overwhelming. The love and acceptance and support they offer is incredible and unlike most institutions I've visited. The professors are often so personable and caring which is not something that many people can find in any teacher these days. JJC is an incredible school for those in the area and I suggest it to all youth if they plan on attending college!

I would have rated lower but it's not their fault at all. As someone with severe adult ADHD, online learning is super difficult for me. The professors I've got this semester have been incredibly accomidating and helpful. Their determination to see me do good in class overpowers any lack of effort I put in. I could not have asked for a better team. The administration is also so, so good at keeping us updated via email about COVID-19 and the status of campus and classes!
This community college has expanded beyond my expectations since I was a little girl. I had the pleasure of attending JJC for the past three years. I graduated in 2020 with a dual degree. JJC has amazing teachers that truly care. In addition to being a student I was offered a student worker position. It was refreshing to work with such an amazing group. All so talented and professional. They truly embrace each team member and like to teach new hires. I would recommend individuals to this college to received a good education , prepare individuals to transfer out or graduate with a degree that prepares for Immediate work, and to become an employee. Furthermore, JJC has partnered with some universities to offer several bachelors degree programs ! Truly a unique college.
