Parkland College sets spring open house Friday

CHAMPAIGN — Parkland College will host its spring open house for students and parents on Friday.

The event will be from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. at the college, 2400 W. Bradley Ave., C.

High school students, counselors and parents are invited to tour the campus, ask questions of faculty and staff and learn about the college's programs and degrees available.

Several sessions are planned.

— At 12:45 p.m.: Dual Credit Student to Parkland Freshman: What are the Steps?

— At 1:15 p.m.: Financial Aid — The Inside Story

— At 1:45 p.m.: Undecided about a College Major? Let us Help!

"If a student is undecided about what to do after high school, this is a really worthwhile event to attend," said Mary Kay Smith, Parkland student services adviser, in a release.

More information about the campuswide open house is available by calling admissions at 217-351-2482 or by emailing the office at

"Parkland College not only allows these students the freedom to explore different career paths but makes such exploration much more affordable than they would experience at a four-year institution without a set career path," she said.
