Prospective adult students can get a glimpse into what life at Harper College would be like at the school's first College for a Day event.

Attendees can learn about transitioning to college, tour the campus and even sign up for two free sample classes or sit in on classes already in session. The event is tailored for GED and English literacy students.

"Our goal is reduce the intimidation about college life and to hopefully increase the students' excitement about moving into college level courses," said Devin Chambers, Harper's adult education development and transition coordinator. "Similar open house events are regularly held for high school students. Adult Education students should be provided similar opportunities to explore their educational futures."

College for a Day will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 20. For more information, call the Adult Education Department at (847) 925-6223.
