Virtual Escape Room

Wednesday, April 21 at 7 p.m.

Join your fellow Illinois community college students to "escape" from reality!

In an escape room, players on a team cooperatively discover clues, solve puzzles, and accomplish tasks in one or more rooms in order to progress and accomplish a specific goal in a limited amount of time. The goal is often to escape from the site of the game.

It's an opportunity to network and have fun!

Register for the Virtual Escape Room.
