Joliet Junior College affected by Illinois budget issues - Ruth de Jauregui, Will County Gazette

The nation's oldest public community college, Joliet Junior College (JJC), has been affected by Illinois' ongoing budget woes as Moody's Investors Services recently downgraded the college's rating from Aa1 to Aa2. The 115-year-old college was founded in 1901 with six students. Today, the college serves more than 40,000 students per year in its six locations. With 184 degree and certificate programs, JJC prepares its students to move on to four-year universities or out into the workforce. Approximately 700,000 people live within the 1,442 boundaries of the district. JJC was one of the 15 community colleges that had their credit rating downgraded by Moody's. http://willcountygazette.com/stories/510967135-joliet-junior-college-affected-by-illinois-budget-issues
