New Students: jOURney

jOURney

Welcome to Oakton's first-year experience program:

OUR College . . . OUR Community . . . OUR Experiences

The jOURney Passport Planner is a great time management tool, and much more – offering a way to track attendance at campus events (Emerging Leader Workshops, guest speakers, Transfer Fairs, educational planning workshops) and log visits to academic and career advisors.
