You can ride your bike to wonderful recreation spots, from beautiful wooded gardens to well-equipped parks to the incomparable lakeshore and its many pleasures. You can even walk to Chicago classics like U.S. Cellular Field (Comiskey Park to true Chicagoans) and the city's vibrant Chinatown.
And professional opportunities: where do we start? Whether it's an incredible summer or academic-year internship, a co-op experience that foots the bill for your education, or even a lucrative first job, our Chicago location places the remarkable right outside your door.
Make it a point.
