Explore Parkland College academic programs, campus life, support services and more during the school's annual Fall Open House.

This event will take place Friday, Nov. 2 from noon to 3 p.m. in the Student Union atrium and in the L and H buildings for its Health Professions programs.

Designed for high school students, parents of college-bound students, and community members, the Parkland College Fall Open House allows visitors to tour the campus; have their questions answered from admissions, financial aid, and counseling representatives; view student demonstrations and explore the college's innovative features. Breakout sessions on financial aid and the Parkland Pathway to Illinois program also will take place during the open house.

For those interested in criminal justice or forensic science, the Parkland College Forensic Science Lab in Room X104 will be open for public viewing from noon to 2 p.m. that day. The science behind criminal investigation is more challenging and satisfying than popular media portray. Students can view the tools of the trade including fingerprinting techniques, DNA gels and skeletal remains, and an instructor will be on hand to talk about the chemistry of it all.

The Health Professions portion of the open house will take place in the L wing of the main campus and at the H building located in Parkland on Mattis, 1309 N. Mattis Ave. in Champaign. The Dental Hygiene, Nursing, Radiologic Technology, Respiratory Care, Surgical Technology and Veterinary Technology programs will be featured in the L wing, while the Nursing, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Service, Massage Therapy, Medical Assisting, Nursing Assistant, Occupational Therapy and Practical Nursing programs will be featured at the H building. Visitors can enjoy chair massages from Massage Therapy students, get their vitals taken from Medical Assisting students and view lab demonstrations from Nursing and Occupational Therapy students in the H building.
