Oak Point University Celebrates GRAND OPENING in Oak Brook

Welcome new member Oak Point University!

Oak Point University (formerly Resurrection University) is a University that specializes in the Health Sciences only featuring two schools: The College of Nursing & The College of Health Sciences.

Oak Point University is an “upper division” or “transfer” university – best viewed as the final two years (junior and senior years) of a four year university. Thus, they only have upper-division classes specific to your program of interest. In other words, if you are interested in the Nursing program, you will only take Nursing classes at Oak Point. For admission into their undergraduate programs, you will need to take general education and other program pre-requisites, or what is equivalent to your freshman and sophomore years, at another regionally-accredited institution like a community or junior college and transfer in those classes and credits.

A couple of weeks ago the Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce and the Village of Oak Brook, Illinois along with DuPage Convention & Visitors Bureau and Murphy Development Inc celebrated Oak Point University with a ribbon cutting and grand opening.

calendarTuesday, 12 October
The right place at the right time.
Gabrielle Bacigalupo, new owner of the Shear Point Tower Salon inside of the Oakbrook Terrace Tower, said a chance meeting with a retiring salon owner in a parking lot early this year led her to become a business owner and run the salon of her dreams.
The Greater Oak Brook Chamber of Commerce, City of Oakbrook Terrace, One Tower Lane staff, fellow chamber members Alan Stern McGrath Lexus of Westmont, Lindsay Boyd & Susan Boyd from Tamandare Travel LLC, and Chamber Board Vice Chairman Finny Rajchel – State Farm Agent all welcomed this business into the vibrant business community of Greater Oak Brook.
Special thanks to City of Oakbrook Terrace Mayor Paul Esposito for helping cut the celebratory ribbon!
