Road Trip

Every college student should experience a road trip with friends.  Just because Oakton is a commuter college does not mean our students should go without this experience.  So instead of going on to the University, Oakton brings the University to you.  Grab a friend or two and head on down to Student Street.

The following Colleges and Universities have been invited to campus in October as a part of our College Fairs.
