Great Lakes, IL

Welcome Great Lakes, IL

Our Mission here at Great Lakes is simple: deliver highly skilled, trained, technically proficient, disciplined and motivated sailors to the fleet.

Since the first group of recruits reported for training July 1911, more than 3.5 million sailors have started their Navy careers right here in northern Illinois. Their experience in "boot camp" transformed them from civilians into sailors, and it is an experience that continues to be a source of pride for all who have earned the right to wear the uniform of the United States Navy.

The department of military education at San Diego City College has been providing quality college education to military personnel both nationally and regionally since 1977. The majority of the military education staff is retired or veterans of the US Armed Forces.
