    Though fun may not come to die here, it is a bit muted. There were full weeks when I couldn't do anything but study or suffer, and all my friends had the same problem.

    The social life and extracurricular activities can be whatever you make of them. Coursework can be slightly overwhelming during mid-terms and close to finals, but if you stay on top of your work and stay organized, there shouldn't be any problem. With this attitude, students have plenty of opportunities to get into the city, experience campus culture, and have fun! I myself love the extracurriculars offered on campus and take every advantage to go downtown. Attending comedy shows, Model UN, and my religious group are a few of the opportunities I take advantage of myself.

    Of course! University of Chicago's campus is enough to make Harry Potter jealous - from our unique housing system to our mascot - the phoenix - to our grand piano-outfitted dormitories, scav hunts, and scarves, the University of Chicago is by far the most enjoyable part of the Hyde Park neighborhood. Scratch that - of the Chicagoland area. Scratch that - of the collegiate world.
