Weitendorf Agricultural Education Center 

Joliet Junior College opened the Weitendorf Agricultural Education Center in June 2007 on 32 acres of land donated by John H. Weitendorf, Sr. a 1942 alumnus. While the center's primary focus is education, the 30,500 square foot complex is available for outside groups and could be an ideal location for your next meeting, event, or show.

Our facility offers combined space to welcome groups from 5 to 500.

The center is conveniently located 10 minutes south of Joliet on Laraway Road, between I-80's Route 53 and Briggs Street exits.
