    Go out and explore the city! There is so much to do, and lots of the nearby museums have free days, the park is also nearby. Find a great group of friends and just go out to explore, you will find something to do or a place to eat at that is awesome.

    I really got a chance to explore the city and see what Chicago was all about. For my specific major, Musical Theatre, I really got To experience the theatre life around the town to see what it’s like to do what I want to do in Chicago. I was privileged to see many shows and was very inspired. I am very proud and honored to even go to school in Downtown Chicago and do theater in one of the most popular cities to do theatre

    There are also events happening and students are made aware of them because of the bulletin boards on every floor across campus. There's always exhibitions in the galleries and interesting organizations/alliances to join.

    Chicago holds a lot of events and places to go at all times. The museums normally have free days if you don't want to pay for them and many of the main parks and beaches are not that far of a walk. There is also great food and art performances almost every day. If you want to find something you normally can here.

    there are so many things you can do for fun in the city. there is great shopping in the loop but amazing thrift stores if you venture out to other neighborhoods. you get a ventra pass so you get free public transportation to explore the city

    you're in the city, grab some friends and explore! go see shows, there is always something going on. there are open mics, improv and sketch shows, plays, and concerts on and off campus. great thing about being a college student is that you can often get into shows for free or at a discounted price. also if you enjoy going to museums keep an eye out for free days or head to the art institute because that's free for all students.
