Perhaps the most important story of the year at College of DuPage is our annual commencement ceremony. This year marks our 36th commencement and we couldn’t be more proud. Our graduating students are diverse in age, background and goals. Every face has a story and on graduation day – that story is one of success!

Congratulations to the class of 2003!

Next up… More greenery… One of the most familiar sites on campus is our 18-acre prairie restoration project which was made possible through the work and dedication of Russell Kirt.

Here you’ll find over a half-mile of trails, including a handicapped-accessible stretch, to take you back in time when all of Illinois was truly the Prairie State.

We are proud to have very talented instructors at College of DuPage. In fact, two of our instructors recently created a new exhibit of paintings and photographs in the Gahlberg Gallery depicting the everyday and the ancient of Italy, Portugal and Spain.
