College Life Rating

The school is really what you make of it. Because it's in the city and not in a "college-town" there is not always big events going on. However, there are many school clubs& organizationss. Also little dorm parties are always happening if you know the right people. Plus you are given a UPass, so you can always explore the big city.

About 85% of the population are commuters so campus is pretty dead on the weekend. If you stay on campus or just coming to enjoy the city there are plenty of places explore in the great city of Chicago.
