It has been quite a few years since they were called Junior Colleges.
Now you can tell how long it has been since I have lived there!

Why are all of them in such terrible neighborhoods (with the exception of Harold Washington)? Living in Uptown, I've always thought the area around Truman was the worst part of the neighborhood. But it's interesting to note that this is probalby the best location for any of them that aren't in the Loop!

Nor is Daley, which is located in a solidly middle class neighborhood. And Olive Harvey might not be in a great area, but it's not horrible, and it's right off the Bishop Ford, so you don't even need to drive through the neighborhood.

if that is not the most stereotypical small paragraph I have ever read.
may i ask where do you live at?
you must not live in chicago nor the suburbs, becuase most people know that daley is in a great neighborhood seeing as i drive and take the bus down pulaski everyday to get to work and back. Not to mention how much the houses around there are going for.
BUT!! ON THE OTHER HAND FORD CITY DOES NO JUSTICE BEING ON THE WESTSIDE OF THE CAMPUS BY CICERO. IT JUST MAKES THAT AREA LOOK TRASHY they need to redo ford city so it looks nice again

Default City/Community Colleges

I want to get a fresh start back in school, and I'm trying to explore my options with any smaller, cheaper city or community colleges where I could spend a few years completing basic classes. I want to study elementary education or something along those lines, so does anyone have any suggestions for good options I could look into that wouldn't be too long of a commute? (I live in Wrigeyville) Any help will be taken into consideration and much appreciated.

All the City Colleges near you (Wright, Truman and Harold Washington) are the same quality. Just go to the nearest one unless there is a particular course you need at another.
