    The school is literally in Chicago. There are infinite possibilities when it comes to things to do for fun. You could go explore neighborhoods like Wicker Park, Logan Square, or Lincoln Park. You could head over to millennium park or the museum campus. If you're a full time student you get a CTA pass to use while school is in session so getting around the city is very easy. You get out what you put in.

    the city of chicago is your backyard. you could go to millennium park for a concert, the united center is only a blue line stop away and then some walking, so going to a bulls or blackhawks game is super easy. any tourist attraction in chicago is yours and since the school provides a pass for free public transportation while school is in session it doesn't cost anything but time to get there. on taylor street there are several bars such as vintage lounge or ten doors that students frequently go to on thursday nights. there are also a couple of pizza places open really late into the night that go for about $2 for enormous slices. big g's and taylor made are my favorites.

    The greatest perk about attending UIC is that it's right next to Chicago! A short train ride to the city where you can go shopping, eat food, go sightseeing and be able to come back to campus for your next class.

    UIC is located between Greektown and Little Italy so there is a lot of good food options, of varrying price, within walking distance. Also your a 20 minute train ride from the Magnificent Mile, which even if you can't afford to shop there is extremely exciting to walk around and experience the vibrance of the city. The school also offers coed leagues for a wide variety of sports for those who want to just have fun playing games.

    If you do not plan on attending a school function, or simply wish to get out more you are in a city that will foster that wish. This school plans numerous outings, concerts and other social gatherings. In addition the city of Chicago offers many social gatherings and opportunities. One can take the bus or drive to the downtown area, though I wouldn't suggest driving; where there is literally an indescribable amount of things to do. You can also venture further South, West, East or wherever you please because Chicago is a city made to be explored.
