JJC Hosting Grand Opening of Event Center Sept. 12

Community members are invited to the official grand opening celebration of JJC’s Event Center on Tuesday, Sept. 12 at 3:30 p.m. on the college’s Main Campus, 1215 Houbolt Road in Joliet.

The ceremony will kick off at 3:30 p.m. with guest speakers; and between 4 and 5:30 p.m., building tours and refreshments will be available.  

The Event Center was one of the major projects planned in the college’s 2013 Master Plan update, providing much-needed space for athletic staff, competitions and training, as well as a venue large enough to host JJC’s annual graduation ceremony, which has been held off-campus since 2010 due to space limitations.

Earlier this year, JJC was proud to host its May 2017 graduation in the Event Center.
