Colleges in Chicago

The City of Chicago is the third most populous city in the world, has been named an alpha global city with one of the highest GDPs in the world, and is home to more than 100 institutions of higher learning. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago is the city that erected the first skyscraper, formed the idea for public junior colleges, and has nurtured 28 sister city relationships with countries across the globe. Chi-town is known for its diverse economy, which adds to the city’s stability, but it’s also a major world financial center, a hub of the retail sector, and a major world convention center destination.

The Windy City claims several nationally-ranked institutions, including the University of Chicago, Illinois Institute of Technology, Loyola University, DePaul University, Columbia College Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Chicago. The postsecondary institutions run the gamut between public, private, for-profit, nonprofit, graduate, and 2-year options, the last of which includes the City Colleges of Chicago, a collection of 2-year colleges that serve more than 80,000 students in the Chicagoland area, and Joliet Junior College, the first public, junior college in the US.

UIC’s College of Medicine is the second-largest medical school in the nation, with a country-premier medical center, and is in good company. The Medical District also hosts Lurie Children’s Hospital, Rush University Medical Center, and the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, as well as many others.  

Deemed one of the most walkable cities in the nation, Chicago is laid out in a grid pattern and has an elevated public transport system, the “L,” as well as an underground subway, and Divvy bike sharing stations. There are a number of Metra train lines, as well as O’Hare International Airport, one of the busiest airports in the world, along with Midway International Airport.
