Not sure if this is more encouraging or daunting, but it’s definitely interesting!

UChicago Residence Hall Spotlight: South Campus

Our newest dorm is split into South Campus East and West. First-year students are placed into singles, doubles, or triples in one of 8 houses, each of which have their own traditions, personality, and common area. With the Arley D. Cathey Dining Commons, large courtyard, and short walk to the main campus, there is much to love about this dorm.

Hyde Park’s Seminary Co-op Bookstore is not merely a bookstore. It is a community. It is a small town. It is a church, a sacred place. 

…so says renowned legal scholar/former UChicago professor/Co-Op member Cass Sunstein in what he calls a “love letter” to our store, which ran in the chicagotribune yesterday. Touched, honored, misty-eyed - we are all of these things and more.

Great to see one of our local bookstores getting some love!

Holy frontlist, readers! This week we’ve got: Ian McEwan’s latest, Booker longlister Joseph O’Neill’s The Dog, Keith Richards’ picture book (?!), and A NEW BOOK BY DR. SEUSS. 

Stop on over to the Seminary Co-Op and check out these new titles!

Reading is pleasure and happiness to be alive or sadness to be alive and above all it’s knowledge and questions.
