    -Make use of you U-Pass (card for unlimited bus&metro rides during the semester) and explore Chicago! It's also good to get out of the Downtown to see some green areas! Neighborhoods are amazing and food (and groceries) outside of the Loop is cheaper and better :). -Art Institute of Chicago, the best art museum according to trip advisor, is free to students every day!!!! We can also attend lectures for members! -Go to free Lincoln Park Zoo! -Go to the Lyric Opera! They have student tickets!

    Gallery openings around the city, events held in the dorms weekly and movie nights in the Nieman center. Mostly people find friends and they hangout together a lot.

    Go to gallery openings, hangout in other rooms, in the Nuveen center and watch movies, go to the beach, go explore the city. It depends on what you like!

    There are always events in my school, it's very entertaining. Mostly if there are plays going, the students can get the tickets for cheaper. There are even fun things that celebrate the holidays I absolutely love it.

    ...the city is our campus. You will end up having to hop a train to a different college's party. The RA's try to engage us...you know how those things are. -_-

    There are so many things you could do in Chicago. It has wonderful dining and other awesome places to go. Like they SAIC said, the whole city is your campus.

    It's always fun to take a walk on the shores of Lake Michigan and visit galleries all over the city.

    Go to concerts, explore the city, check out the field museum, free access to the art institute of chicago, science and history museums, boys town (a gay culture area) belmont, movies, the L and almost any sort of thing you can think of. Chicago comes alive in the summer with fairs and music festivals, so there is always something to do.
