Community Members Invited to Discover Joliet Junior College on Nov. 2

High school students, their families and others thinking about going back to school are invited to explore Joliet Junior College’s academic departments and student services during Discover JJC on Nov. 2 from 9 a.m. to noon on the Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.

Potential students learn about Joliet Junior College at Discover JJC in 2011.

Faculty members from more than 100 of JJC’s academic programs will be on hand to meet potential students, talk about their departments, and answer questions. JJC Recruitment Specialist Sue Callans said this is one of the most popular parts of the morning.

“It is a great opportunity to not only come out and see the campus, but also to speak directly to the academic department that you are interested in,” she said.

Participants will also get the chance to talk with current students about what it’s like to attend JJC. JJC student tour guides will be available to show potential students around the Main Campus.

Two presentations will be offered at Discover JJC:
• “Getting Started At JJC” will go over transfer information, ACT placement, and other requirements. 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m. Room A-1061
• “Paying for College” will answer financial aid questions. 9:15 a.m., 10:15 a.m., 11:15 a.m. Room A-1002

Potential students will also have the opportunity to hear about all the resources and support services at JJC.

“There’s a very positive vibe at Discover JJC and the attendees leave with valuable information on all that JJC has to offer,” Callans said.

Refreshments will be served and potential students can enter themselves into a raffle to win an iPod or a $50 JJC Bookstore gift certificate.

All participants are also invited to bring their cars to the JJC automotive lab for a free winter maintenance check up during Discover JJC.

JJC has locations in Joliet, Morris, Frankfort, and Romeoville. For more information about the college, log on to To find out more about Discover JJC, visit
