The University Center
University Center Open House
The University Center will host education fairs to provide information to prospective students about University Center offerings. They will take place in the Multi-Purpose Room of our Grayslake facility. Each event will showcase the University Center’s undergraduate and graduate and professional development programs and will provide the opportunity to meet with representatives from the member schools who can discuss their programs in depth. The University Center staff will also attend to provide pre-admission advising. Our next open houses will be:
Tuesday, October 7, 2014 from 6 to 8 pm.
RSVP here for the Open House.
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. Find out where and when University Center will be out in the community by visiting our Outreach Events page.
