University of Chicago Students: A bevy of social entrepreneurs and idea makers

Is that Hogwarts? No, it’s the University of Chicago: this week’s location for our Students of the Week post.

Their mascot is the Phoenix, and you’ll find these impressive overachievers spending a lot of time studying amidst Gothic-style architecture and discussing Hegel at Harper Library. In their free time, they’re eating at the Med or hanging out at the Point.

5 interesting things that students do in or around the University of Chicago:

  1. Get (to) the Point?! It’s a man-made peninsula.
  2. Bike up LSD…no it’s not a drug. But an awesome street bordering Lake Michigan.
  3. Food at Pilsen! The only place for authentic Mexican food…yummy.
  4. Shopping at Watertower
  5. Go to Jazz Clubs!
