I loved the campus . They are always friendly to visitors . They also keep everything clean and they make sure you know what you want . the students are always happy to talk to you and or answer your questions. I love the diversity and the acceptance for people who are different.
First I would like to start by saying the staff is so important to any organization because those are the first people you see before you really start classes. They are very helpful to my needs and as well as to others needs they really take the time out to answer any questions that I need answer to and very understanding I recommend anyone going to college to go to this school if you would love customer service and friendly environment this is the place to be.
I work at the University of Chicago. The students and facility are nice and caring. You get to meet a lot of people from all over the world.

What I liked about the University of Chicago was its challenging curriculum known as "Core". It's a very pretentious school with outstanding standards based on academia. The University of Chicago is probably the best school, based on academics, all the whole Midwest region.
University of Chicago gives you a wholesome educational experience due to the core curriculum. However, enrolling in classes is not an enjoyable experience.
I took part in HSF's Leadership Institute at the University of Chicago. I stayed in a single dorm that was neat and well kept. The campus was easy to navigate around and the food was particularly good. I ate at Cathy every day!
So far I have greatly enjoyed my experience at UChicago. The activities, people, and culture of the school is incredible. I have found myself transformed since starting school back in September. I am more engaged, excited, and optimistic about my future endeavors than ever before!
The University of Chicago has so far provided me with an incredible undergraduate experience. While extremely difficult, my course load has been fulfilling and valuable. It certainly is not for everyone, but UChicago is an amazing institution.
A really prestigious institution. The education provided here is one of the best in the world and really prepares the students to succeed in life.
U of C, with its competitive environment has pushed me to become a better student. Reaching out for help has never been an issue, and everyone here, faculty, staff, and students, is very friendly and welcoming.
The University of Chicago is a very rigorous school, and not all people make it through the intensity. But it is very rewarding and it is possible to have a lot of fun like I did.
This is an amazing school. Be warned academics are taking very seriously so don't expect to coast. Really good return on investment since there are plenty of internship opportunities.
Strong academic institution that will really push you to expand your knowledge boundaries. However, sometimes the college courses are unnecessarily difficult and the quarter system makes it hard for those who fall behind to catch up.
As a high school student, this university has provided my friends and I with various opportunities and summer programs. The facility is beautiful, and the environment is very friendly, open, and diverse.
UChicago is highly challenging but can be really fun if you're down to take all the core classes (which will for sure include a class or two you weren't initially interested in) and won't be set back by the fact that you're gonna learn hardcore theory and will have to figure out the practical aspects on your own. People are usually a lot more weird than in other schools so if you're kinda crazy you can fit in properly if not you'll have to figure out how to live with the mad.
I love the atmosphere of the campus. All the students seem really engaged with their classmates as well as their studies and all the professors I've had enjoy teaching and working with the students here! Love love love it here!
I am very happy with my decision to come to University of Chicago. The school certainly delivers on its reputation for challenging academics, particularly if one takes honors math/sci and "the classic" humanities classes, but it is possible to take less intense classes. The student body is quite varied, but most students are intellectual and mature. Social life options include large frat parties, smaller apartment parties, going to downtown Chicago (easy to do by public transportation), on-campus events. The dorm house system is terrific, at least, my particular house is active, inclusive, and fun.

I'm a female who is very interested in weightlifting. Ratner's good, with a decent amount of equipment, but doesn't have the space needed for ab workouts and additional cardio machines since those currently there are almost always in use. Good number of squat racks. Pretty male dominated. I've also participated in some intramural Volleyball in the Field House and the floor is like a popcorn ceiling - if you go down after a ball, you'll lose skin. Needs to be resurfaced.
UChicago is a beautiful school with incredibly driven students. Everyone is incredibly impressive- it can be intomidsting at times, but it also pushes you to be your best. The University is extremely rigorous but prepares you well for the future.
My experience at UChicago so far has been wonderful! There is such a variety of courses to choose from, and so many interesting majors are available. All of the courses are respectable and worth taking. The professors and TA's are all very experienced in their fields, and are very passionate about what they're teaching. The Core classes are usually taught in lecture halls, but also have classes periods that are broken up into smaller groups (during discussion). Other classes can have as few as five students, like my Yucatec Maya class, which allows students to have awesome conversations with their professors and TA's.
