“Education at the University is world-class, that’s a given. It takes time, however, to understand why…It’s about more than the books on classical philosophy and modern poetry, more than the Nobel laureates and Guggenheim fellows. It’s ultimately about the people in the room next to you, the conversations you’ll have while sitting up until the sky lights with the dawn.”
Theodore N., AB’10
This might be the hottest day ever in Chicago? Over 100 degrees? Really?

You notice it in the classroom, where your classmate sheds new light on Dante by translating the original Italian. You hear it on the Quads, taking in a drum concert as you practice with the Judo Club. You see it in Rockefeller Chapel, viewing an exhibit on the relationship between humans and nature after your meditation class. or you taste it in the dining hall, sampling kosher, Halal, and vegan entrees with your roommates. However you experience it, you feel it the moment you get here: this is where you belong.
