Chicago Trip, Summer 2015

This summer, our high school seniors and a few select juniors and sophomores traveled to Chicago to tour colleges and sightsee around the city. Even though it was the beginning of July, us New Orleanians thought the 65 degree weather was quite chilly! But it was a nice break from the heat and humidity of our home.

Our students had information sessions with admissions counselors and toured the colleges with current students at four different universities, Concordia Chicago, DePaul University, University of Illinois at Chicago, and University of Notre Dame. After each university, we had a debriefing session on what we liked about each college and whether or not the college was a good fit for the student.

In addition to the University tours, we got to see some awesome sites in Chicago, including the Hancock tower, the Cloud Gate at Millennium Park, the Pier, and we took an Architecture Boat tour of the city. Our trip was truly a great vacation!
