    i know uchicago has its own campus traditions, but besides that, you're in chicago! chicago has its own traditions, which as a uchicago student you are welcome to participate. chicago never has nothing to do. you can go downtown to shop, sightsee, meet important people, or anything really. you can volunteer at huge events, like the chicago marathon. if you want to do something, you'll find something. in terms of stuff on campus, there are plenty of activities and clubs; i'm sure some compete with what the city has to offer.

    Chicago is always a lot of fun! With this great city at their fingertips, I'm sure students do a variety of activities, when they're not studying!

    The college is in the middle of Chicago, and Hyde Park is right there. There's meusems. There's restaurants. According to some reviews I have read, UChicago has a decent party life too. It actually looks like you'd have a more difficult staying bored than you would having fun.

    Definitely a party scene if you're into that - frat life as well as lots of parties in the dorms and surrounding apartments. Lots of non-alcoholic/party alternatives in that you are in the wonderful of city to Chicago and you can explore it as much as you want. UChicago probably has a lot less fun programming than your typical college though, and it's not the typical college experience.

    There is plenty to do for fun here, whether it's joining one of the hundreds of RSOs on campus, going to the Logan center to catch an art or music performance, or hanging out with friends. UChicago is not where fun goes to die! Rather, it's a place where fun is interspersed amongst hours of rigorous work. Point is, you won't be bored here, and there will plenty of opportunities to take a break and let your endorphins run rampant and have your dopamine levels recharge before hitting the books again!

    Its tons of odd clubs and groups, the school is right by the beach and the museum of science and industry, and haper theater ($6 movie tickets and $3 in the morning) is practically right up the street.

    Chicago is a city with incredible neighborhood. Make sure to explore every single one, find the ones you like, and go back to enjoy yourself. Art museums, shows, restaurants, views, tours, bars, clubsâ?¦ the options are endless. Hyde Park itself offers plenty with the Museum of Science and Industry, great views at The Point (on the lakeshore), restaurants galore (Get shakes from the Medici!), and an ice rink in the winter. If the fraternity scene is more of your thing, UChicago has plenty to offer with regards to that; every weekend some frat is hosting a party and many dorms also host their own gatherings.

    There is a train station near campus that goes straight to downtown.
