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.

Starting at Joliet Junior College was very hard for me because I wanted to go to a HBCU right out of high school. When I first got there, they welcomed me in like family. It made me feel so good inside and made me change my mindset about a Junior College. I got myself involved right away and that was the best decision EVER!
JJC is a great junior college to begin your education! Not only are the professors amazing, there are so many classes, and they have a great administration. There are so many resources for students to use and the campus is great. The only downside to JJC is out of the schools control; many students do not take class seriously. Many are always on their phones or talking. Another great thing about JJC is the online classes. The online classes are easy and organized. A great college with great prices I would recommend to anyone!
