HAMMOND | The Office of the Governor has proclaimed July 22-26 as Indiana Private College Week. All private, nonprofit colleges and universities across the state are opening their doors to prospective students and their families.

Calumet College of St. Joseph, one of the 31 independent colleges, will host campus tours at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday. To register for a tour or for more information, contact the Admissions Office at (219) 473-4215 or admissions@ccsj.edu.

ICI campuses enroll 20 percent of the state’s undergraduates and annually produce 35 percent of all bachelor’s degrees in Indiana. The majority of ICI students graduate within four years.
