Welcome to Chicago

Whether you think of it as the Windy City, the Second City, the City of Big Shoulders, the City in a Garden, or the City that Works, we're glad you're here.

Chicago Studies is here to make sure you don't stay an outsider while you're here as a student. Think of us as a sort-of-minor that can help you forge a genuine bond with Chi-town and its many communities. And if you're an instructor, think of us as your partner in constructing meaningful, impactful learning experiences throughout the Great American City.

Stay Safe, Chicago

Whether you're going out for groceries or gathering data about Chicagoans during the pandemic, it's important to take care of yourself AND those around you during the ongoing COVID-19 emergency.  Here's how to do it.
