My wife is in the University of Chicago Center for Care an Discovery (Hospital). It's been over a week and I have had the opportunity to sample many things on the 7th fl. food service menu.

Did you know that the first atomic sustained reaction took place at the University of Chicago under what is now the Graduate Library? Not only can you visit the exact location of this historic milestone, you can also look at the memorabilia associated with the atomic work in the university archives. It is a beautiful campus with rich history.

You can't beat this campus. Absolutely beautiful even in the pouring rain. Don't miss Rockerfeller Chapel. There is a $3 suggested fee but there wasno one there to collect it when we were there. Stunning and the pictures don't do it justice. The students on campus were very friendly and helpful. Spend some time just wondering around the campus. You'll... More

We had to park near the University because that was the closest parking spot available to the Frank Lloyd Wright Robie House. We fell in love with the campus! It was very very cold or we would have spent more time exploring the beautiful buildings.

The second museum campus in Chicago is at the esteemed University of Chicago. The Oriental Museum, the DuSable Museum of African American History, and the Smart Museum are all worthwhile to visit. The gothic Rockefeller Chapel and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House are architectural gems.

U of C is one of the best schools in the world. The campus is beautiful and classic in every way. Take a tour of the Quad and you will see what I mean.

I love walking through this campus in the late spring, beautiful buildings. It is similar to Oxford University, but you don't have to pay.

I have a hobby of visiting college campuses, and I loved this one. It has gorgeous plantings. The main quad and the chapel are beautiful. Check out the Oriental Museum and the campus book store.

U of Chicago's architecture makes you feel like you are in Oxford. Our visit was very special as our son was there to enter the M Div program.
