    There's always activities going on around campus! There are a lot of clubs to choose, different sororities and fraternities to join at IIT that VanderCook students are very welcomed to join. VanderCook, being a very small school, has two professional music Greek Life, one for men and one for women. Also, public transportation is everywhere, so it's very easy to go anywhere you want in the city or the suburbs.

    We have the city of Chicago literally right next door. Several times during the year students will jump on the train and one or two stops later their in the heart of the city. VanderCook is constantly getting free tickets to go see the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and we a re able to go see the open rehearsals. You can go to the beach or Navy Pier. You can grab a few friends and go see a movie or go shopping. Your opportunities are virtually endless.
