The classes are very educational and require a lot of focus. The best part is the university understands this, and so there are a lot of opportunities to get help from free tutors and TA's almost every day throughout the quarter.

    The campus is stunning, with an amazing snow-globe-like library and hogwartian halls. The undergraduate program is supposedly run like a liberal arts school, with most class sizes capped at 15. If you like academic rigor and snow (lots and lots and lots of snow), check this school out!

    A beautiful campus with staff who care about us. The students are all ready to learn about their passions and engage the community. There is differently something there for everyone.

    Ranked as a top-ten University in both the U.S. and the world, so expect the academics and environment to reflect that. It feels like a whole new - but still Urban - world on campus, but the downtown is right there for plethora of activities. There are so many different diverse peoples, ideas, and culture's in such a relatively small community.

    I haven't personally been on campus, but since I was a little girl UChicago has been at the top of my college list and still is because of how beautiful it is and how focused this schools is on the humanities and social sciences.

    The University of Chicago has an inspiring atmosphere and felt very welcoming. I'd love to be a part of the intense academic environment. Students I met on my visit seemed very involved in their classes and there were a ton of student-led clubs.

    University of Chicago seems like a place full of wonderful and astonishingly bright students; however I must admit I'm rather intimidated by the reviews of more disgruntled students. The dorms and campus appear beautiful, and any future peers will surely be good influences. I'd be very interested in getting into this academically enriching school.

    this school is a little university hub in a big city. the campus aura is pretty mellow, but the buildings are beautiful. however, the university continues to expand, so it also has its own sense of unpredictability.

    The U of Chicago is a very beautiful campus in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood and city. Along with its diverse academic options, UChicago serves diverse people, too. While this school is very expensive, financial aid is very easy to get and its up to the prospective student if the bang is worth the buck.
