Harper to hold Open House for high school students

October 7, 2014

Come see why more than a third of area high school graduates turn to Harper College to begin their journey in higher education.

High school juniors and seniors – along with their parents – are invited to attend Harper's Open House from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 9, in the Wojcik Conference Center on the College's main campus, 1200 W. Algonquin Road in Palatine.

Families can engage with a distinguished faculty panel about academic programs and possible career options; learn about scholarships and how to apply for financial aid; and receive more information about opportunities offered through the Interdisciplinary Studies program such as world languages, study abroad programs, Honors programs and Phi Theta Kappa.

Families can also learn more about earning college credit during high school at an information session on dual and concurrent credit, programs currently benefiting more than 3,000 high school students in Harper's district.

Convenient parking is located in lot 14. For more information or to RSVP, visit harpercollege.edu or call Admissions Outreach at 847.925.6700.
