Chicago

Chicago is known to have the warmth and hospitality of the Midwest, in a world-class setting. The city is composed of a collection of 20th-century architectural landmarks which were erected after the Great Fire of 1871. Over a century later, Chicago has been rebuilt to become a cultural utopia; overflowing with museums, galleries, public parks filled with gardens and monuments, and theatre and performing arts attractions.

Whether viewing Chicago’s world-famous skyline from a boat ride on Lake Michigan, visiting its most cherished landmark—the historic water tower—or strolling the Magnificent Mile, students find their time in Chicago to be both memorable and enriching.
