Rogers Park is a great location for college students since Loyola, Northwestern, and North Park campuses are close by. There’s a plethora of ethnic foods to try for any foodie- Indian, Senegalese, Ethiopian, Greek, and more! There are more chain restaurants close to campus which allows students to get meals taken care of even when schedules get really busy. Locations for Target, Aldi, Walgreens, CVS, Whole Foods, and Cermak are scattered around and easily accessible. For people interested in nightlife activities, Rogers Park has its own bars, but also Uptown is pretty close where there are jazz bars, a theater, and late night bars with chill vibes.

I love Rogers Park! It has a great, small neighborhood vibe in a big city setting. My street is quiet, often dotted with the sounds of foot traffic and an occasional dog. My local grocery store, Devon Market, is a great, affordable and diverse little supermarket within walking distance. I've also been delighted to find small arts communities and opportunities in the neighborhood, which is an essential to my living experience here!
This neighborhood is very diverse. It is a melting pot of different cultures and backgrounds. There are a ahndful of different schools available, public transportation, many different foods to choose from, and there are many resources available!
