Augustana College has opened a suburan Chicago office and will host a kick-off admissions event from 4-6 p.m. Dec. 2. The regional office is located in the Highland Pointe II complex, 377 E. Butterfield Road, Ste. 201, Lombard, Ill.

The event will include an admissions presentation, discussion with an alumni panel, questions, conversation and light refreshments. Visitors should register by Nov. 28 at

The new office will make it more convenient for students from the Chicago area to get to know Augustana before visiting the Rock Island campus and allow them to follow up their visits with additional one-on-one support at the Chicago area office.

Potential students will be able to attend admissions interviews, college search workshops, Augustana information sessions, fine arts and athletics recruiting events, and sessions about the financial assistance process at the new office.

Courtney Wallace, a native of Galva, Ill., will serve as director of admissions in the Chicago region, while Quad-City native Jenna Muench will serve as assistant director of admissions. Wallace previously worked as a regional admissions counselor for Missouri University of Science and Technology, and Muench was an adviser to students at Concordia University in Chicago.
