Senator Lightford would like to share with you that a City Colleges of Chicago Open House event will be taking place on the 18th of November, 2015. The Open House event will take place at six out of our seven campuses. Due to the construction of the new Malcolm X campus building, which is scheduled to open in January of 2016, Malcolm X College will not be hosting an Open House event.

There will be two sessions of the Open House event on November 18th. The first session will occur between the hours of 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and the second session will occur from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Below are two links for interested people to register for either the morning or evening Open House sessions. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact City Colleges of Chicago directly at 773-851-0197 or This email address is being protected from spambots.
