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!

Proffesors are overall helpful. Although, using the website called rate my professor always helps! Academic wise the coursework can be challenging. Students are overall nice and friendly. Advisors at JJC could improve with help in transfer matters. Cafeteria food is pretty great and places to relax are endless.
The faculty is super welcoming and helpful! My professors have always worked around my schedule and willing to give me extra help. They also are open to my ideas and like to collaborate with the students to better the community. I believe JJC is a great option for someone who is looking to finish a degree, transfer for a university, or get his or her feet wet with college while he or she figures out what to do with the rest of his or her life.
