Junior/Sophomore Visit Day

The 2016 Junior/Sophomore Visit Day has passed. Please join us at another upcoming campus visit event, or plan to join us for next Junior/Sophomore Visit Day in March 2017.

Mid-high school isn't too early to start looking at colleges. This special day during the spring semester, designed just for high school juniors and sophomores, helps give you a foundation of information about North Park, as well as about college in general and your school search. Parents are also welcome to attend.

We are happy to provide directions to campus and if needed, we can assist you and your family in arranging transportation from an airport, bus, or train terminal to North Park's campus. Please indicate on the registration form that you'd like some help in this area, and our visit coordinator will be in touch with you to work out the details.

Parking Information

You may park in our visitor parking lot at the corner of Foster and Kedzie Avenues. No visitor parking passes are needed for the event. Download a campus map with designated parking areas.


There will not be on-campus housing overnight available for this event. There are a number of hotels in the nearby area as well as downtown Chicago. Accommodations must be made directly with the hotels. Your hotel may be able to offer transportation options to and from campus, so be sure to ask. Otherwise, a vast array of car rental agencies have offices at O'Hare and Midway Airports.

In addition, we can recommend a number of excellent restaurants, both in the North Park area and around the city.
