  • City navigation tips on transportation, housing, sights and sounds, hangout spots and other resources in Chicago
  • Program Insight, where students can get advice from upper classmen from their program
  • Professional networking events in collaboration with Career Services
  • Community outreach programs, such as the Imagine charity art auction, Chicago Youth Programs and more
  • Campus improvements, such as the 4th floor lounge and in-progress 5th floor lounge
