    Open House Opportunities
    Listed below are open house dates for Illinois and Iowa State Schools.  You will also see several popular private colleges listed. You can visit a college almost any day of the week.  However, Open House Visits sometimes are a little more comprehensive for prospective students. They are also often held on holidays which can be helpful for your schedule.  See Mrs. Drish if you would like help setting up college visits, or need the paperwork necessary for a school excuse. Remember, you are entitled to 1 college visit as a junior, and 2 as a senior as long as you get the appropriate paperwork from the academic/counseling office.
