If you're investigating colleges, check out Oakton from every angle during an upcoming campus visit program. At 6 p.m., Tuesday, Dec. 3, take stock of the college's Des Plaines campus, 1600 E. Golf Road (Room 1625).
"Each year Oakton meets the needs of thousands of people who find a community college the best place to begin or continue their academic or career studies," says Oakton President Margaret B. Lee. "Thousands more 'lifetime learners' find Oakton's campuses the ideal place for noncredit courses."
Sponsored by the Office of Student Recruitment and Outreach, the event will give participants the chance to talk with current students and admission and financial aid representatives. In addition, they'll learn about Oakton's academic and career programs, services and student clubs.
The college offers associate's degrees and certificate programs for students planning to move on to four-year colleges or universities, as well as those preparing for employment in a variety of careers. Accredited by The Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the college is recognized by the Illinois Community College Board and is a member of the American Association of Community Colleges.
