Chicago Fridays

Throughout the year, join Chicago Studies for Chicago Fridays, an un-programmed block of time from 12:00-2:00 PM CST which invites students to meet and discuss all things Chicago - whether it be ongoing student research, a new museum exhibit, or the latest Sox game! Chicago Fridays will take place every other Friday in the Urban Lounge (1155 E. 60th St.), and will always include coffee and snacks and the opportunity to consult with Chicago Studies faculty and staff in an informal atmosphere. Some Fridays will also feature special guests and programming. During O-Week, stop by to learn more about the many ways the College encourages you to discover, study, engage, and positively impact the city we call home. All are welcome!
