Joliet Junior College Reviews
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!
I had an amazing learning experience while I was there. There are many opportunities for a student to get involved with the campus. Some include joining various clubs, being a part of the student government,etc. The professors are willing to spend one-on-one sessions with the students. Since this is a junior college, the professors are more open and students have the opportunity to study a small classroom making great friendships and learning the material better. I love the counselling and the career centers. They helped me a lot with my subjects and made my transfer successful. The library is a bit small but you can get your thing done. I always prefer the quiet area in the library to study. I would like to see more classes being offered in the summer. The faculty is amazing.
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.
