Junior/Sophomore Visit Day

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.

There are no more Junior and Sophomore Visit Days scheduled for this semester, but we invite you to visit our campus for an individual visit. Check back in the fall for our next Junior and Sophomore Visit Day date.

Getting Here

Parking is available in our lot at Kedzie and Foster or on Kimball Avenue. You can obtain a visitor pass from us after you park. Directions to campus are available if you're coming by car or train.

We can also pick you up at the airport, train station, or bus terminal and bring you to campus if you arrive between 8:00 am and 9:00 pm and make your arrangements with us in advance.

Lodging

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.
