The University Center
University Center Open House
The University Center hosts free education fairs to provide information to prospective students about University Center offerings. They take place in the Multi-Purpose Room of our Grayslake facility. Each event showcases the University Center’s undergraduate and graduate and professional development programs and provides the opportunity to meet with representatives from the member schools who can discuss their programs in depth. Often there are free workshops to attend during the event. XLC does a live broadcast from the Open Houses and brings their cash machine. The University Center staff also attend to provide pre-admission advising. Our next open houses will be:

In the Local Community
The University Center staffs tables at a variety of local community events, local employers, and the College of Lake County. Most of these events are open to the public, although those held at worksites are usually open only to staff of that employer.
