Chicago awaits your arrival! Travel the entire city using your own unlimited public transportation pass, walk to your neighborhood grocery store and shop for dinner, stop in your local coffeeshop and sip on a latte, grab a bite of cultural cuisine, explore the city and all that it offers you.

Orientation (O-Week)

We believe the city can become whatever you want it to be.


In order to make that sentiment a reality, every Chicago Center student completes an intensive orientation schedule. You'll explore Hyde Park (your new neighborhood), learn how to navigate the entire city on public transportation, develop street smarts and complete a safety workshop, visit internationally recognized museums, attend neighborhood tours, and begin to understand the layout of Chicago and its many communities.


Even after just a week, Chicago will start to feel like home!

Your Home Away from Home

Living at the Boulevard (our student residence hall) often becomes a nexus for community, and some of the best learning happens in the context of late-night discussions. In fact, our students and alumni often share that they found some of their lifelong friends during their time at the program.
