Travel and Hotels

Things to do in Chicago


Family Weekend is a pretty packed schedule of great things for you to check out with or without your student.  We know, though, for some families going to the football game or other events we plan may not be as relevant.  For those families we think it is a great time to explore Evanston and Chicago, two cities your student has the privilege of living in and close to during their time here.
