What is your overall opinion of this school?

I attended Joliet Junior College for 4 semesters and it had some positives and some negatives. Some of the positives were that teachers cared about the students not only with their grades, also with their home life. Attending a junior college is usually because of the lack of money the student or family has, especially in and around the poor area of Joliet. We are very lucky to have JJC. With that money struggle, comes with more problems that are happening at home, such as abuse, parents always working, or violence. The teachers would sit and talk with the students about what is going on with their home lives so that they can focus on their grades more. Another positive is that it is very affordable, and easy to get to because the main campus is right off I-80 expressway. The last positive is that there are multiple campus's around the chicago suburb area! There is one in west Joliet, Downtown Joliet, Frankfort, Plainfield, and Romeoville. Now on to the negatives about the school. The first and most important negative is that the employees that run the admission, student accounts and payments, and financial aid offices do not have a clue what to do. They read off a script and learn from watching other employees. You can see many students getting stressed out when trying to communicate to the employees about what is wrong, and they just do not know how to respond with the correct answer. Another problem was that there are usually not enough classes or enough spots in the class to sign up. Sometimes there are only 2-3 classes with 20 seats in each class for a whole semester. That is a huge problem when you have a college of 10,000 plus students. The final negative is that there is not enough parking. If you come later in the day you're probably going to end up walking for about 5 minutes to class, so be prepared. Overall, Joliet Junior College is a great college to go to for students that want to save money while getting an education. I recommend this college to any student who is struggling financially.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Joliet Junior College is a very inexpensive way to get your general education credits out of the way. It is very convenient for people that are not financially set for a four year university. The school overall is very clean and safe with uniformed officers always visible from inside on the third floor to the center of the parking lot. The classes sizes are very excellent. If you liked a high school class size of between 20-30 than this school is right for you. Every school seems like its the best fit for you but colleges come with a few down falls. The few down falls to Joliet Junior College is the food is expensive. It is very tasty but it will cost you four bucks for a cheese burger. I can go to McDonald's and get four chicken sandwiches for that price. Second, the teachers that are well set for a subject can teach it very well and thoroughly and others make you become your own teacher. Sometimes it seems like they just find random people and give them a teaching job. The last down fall is the drive, driving back and forth everyday from home is very time consuming and a lot of mileage on your car. I wish there was on-campus living but its a community college so people don't expect much and if you are looking for sporting events this is not the school. JJC has sports but are not very popular or fun to watch. Other than that, this school is good for getting general education credits out of the way or that one class you need to redo in order to move on.

Overall, Joliet Junior College provides a comfortable environment to take classes in. There are plenty of places to hang out and get work done and the facilities are pretty nice for a junior college. All of my professors were very good and the classrooms got the job done reasonably well. Overall a solid A.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Wonderful school. It is right off the expressway, majority of students live off campus and commute to school, faculty and staff are easy to talk to, tuition and class costs are fair, and an excellent choice to save money for an associates degree before transferring. Joliet Junior College offers a plethora of career paths and degree programs. There are plenty of clubs, organizations, and events to partake in such as transfer college and job fairs, club recruiting days, student appreciation days, volunteer activities, holiday events, leadership seminars, and so much more. There are also amazing people in Office of Student Activities who will help you get involved on campus and off campus.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think JJC is a great community college that gives great opportunities for students who are looking to transfer after 2 years of studying at JJC. Some students do come through to either finish degrees or to gain experience. I believe that after my 2 years at JJC I will be prepared​ to continue on to a university to finish my degree.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I was an older student who went back to complete my Associates Degree many years later. I did not get involved in all the student activities but there were plenty available. The campus is clean and safe, I never felt afraid. All the professors I had contact with were great and always available for help or questions. There were plenty of ways to have fun on campus and also to be involved in clubs or sports or study groups.
