Hello from Cairo!
A day in the life of a UChicagoan: old school style. This was part of a photo-series in the Maroon, and we kinda love it.

Lisa Laumann, student and daughter of University of Chicago provost Edward Laumann, yawns at the end of a long day spent studying in Regenstein Library. University of Chicago student (the roommate of photographer Chris Dawe) relaxes at the end of the day. Andrew Kornylak pours liquid into a test tube during a laboratory session for Chemistry 122.
Art Institute Intern
There’s something about Sunday afternoons at the AI. Just a ten minute metra ride from campus, you’ll find us wandering the gallery until sun-down with our Arts Passes (making it freeeee for UChicagoans) - but over the summer, Amanda got to spend every day there as the Jeff Metcalf Intern. We’re a little jealous. Check out some of UChicago Career Advancement’s internship opportunities here.

Perhaps no context is the best context. Enjoy the wonderful, quirky, brilliant world of the greatest Scavenger Hunt competition of all time: the Olympics.

The Major Activities Board + LUDACRIS — Summer Breeze — May 19, 2012
“On the day of Summer Breeze, all MAB Board members are busy from sunrise to sunrise. Last year, they began setting up the equipment in the morning, and finished taking it down around 2 a.m. The Board is also responsible for managing all aspects of the performance: in addition to setting up the equipment and taking it down, they transport the artists, and make sure the show runs smoothly.”

Broadview Hall is the last surviving luxury hotel converted into dormitories by the University, where about 200 lucky students live in three houses. It’s steps away from the #6 bus (the express route downtown), three blocks from Lake Michigan and right near the restaurants and stores on 55th Street. The ballroom on the first floor is the hangout spot of choice. Ball. Room.
The Leaky Cauldron
Singles, private bathrooms, and a block north of the world-famous Museum of Science and Industry, this leaky location doesn’t actually leak. But it is definitely a hub of social life - students hang out in the beautiful ballroom, are a five-ish-minute bus ride from campus, and have a well-stocked community kitchen…in fact, its just as well stocked as the Leaky Cauldron. Hah! This analogy works!
