COURSES FILL UP QUICKLY, SO REGISTER EARLY!
Chicago is one of the BEST large cities in the USA! Our campus is in the heart of downtown, just blocks from the Art Institute, Grant Park, Millennium Park, Museum Campus and the Magnificent Mile. Students who have attended the "Difference" class have enjoyed visiting cultural institutions like the National Museum of Mexican Art and the National Hellenic Museum in Chicago’s Greektown neighborhood as well as Chinatown, the third largest one outside of China. Past students at our "Discover class" have participated in activities such as a double decker bus tour, Chicago Architecture boat cruise, Hancock Tower viewing or comedy show and of course Chicago style pizza! Don’t miss out on this unique weekend class experience, and sign up for both classes to experience what Chicago has to offer!
