"The JJC Culinary Arts program gives you the opportunity to expand your culinary mind. It gives you the chance to build bridges with some of the best people in the business. At JJC you feel like you are part of the team. The class sizes are great and the friends you make are for a lifetime. Why go to a school where you pay school loans until you're 40 years old?"
"I enjoy the JJC Culinary Arts program because of the relatively small size of the classes and the one-on-one attention we recieve. I also enjoy the wonderful people I've met here and I appreciate everything I've learned from them. I know that the friends I've made here will be with me for year to come."
"The culinary program at JJC is inexpensive to attend and they have an excellent baking program."
"I really enjoyed my experience here at Joliet. My favorite class was the baking and pastries class with Chef Imming. I liked it so much that I'm coming back next fall to continue taking classes just in baking and pastries."
"This program has been very influential to my culinary career, but the use of convenience products needs to be eliminated. I would recommend this program to anybody."
"School here was good and fun. The chefs are very knowledgeable. I really didn't think I could learn more than I thought I knew about cooking and baking."
"The abundance of things you learn here is great. The cost is affordable to most students out of districts but certainly for in-district students. The competition program is great for students who are serious about learning and enhancing their skills."
"My opinion about the JJC culinary program is it's an excellent experience as you are really learning in class. Also, in the kitchen you're working next to great chefs who guide you in understanding cooking methods."
"Before coming to JJC, I looked at many other schools. I choose JJC because I felt the most comfortable and the chefs seemed very open and fun to work with."
"JJC is a great place to study culinary arts. It's very inexpensive and you gain great culinary knowledge. It's very hands on. If you go anywhere else, it's just a lot of studying. Here you actually get to try it not once, but many times."
"I've looked at a lot of schools but when I started here the teachers were cool and the classes were small. This made me feel more comfortable about asking questions."
"Because of this curriculum, I have expanded my knowledge of the hospitality industry and have enhanced my career opportunities. I believe that JJC offers a wonderful hospitality program that provides students access to a multitude of careers, as well as industry contacts."
