College of DuPage
College of DuPage was founded in 1967. Having had its first classes in office trailers across the Community College District 502, the students, faculty and staff became known as 'road runners' because they had to drive around to each class. In 1968 COD acquired the site for its campus, and completed the construction of three buildings on that campus a year later. Notable Alumni of COD include comedian brothers John and Jim Belushi.
