Passport Program

Welcome to the SOA Passport Program - the ultimate Northwestern study break to promote wellness and grow your comfort with navigating your surroundings! We are excited to offer students a variety of FREE experiences. Experiences range from attending major league sports events, visits to local cultural institutions like the Shedd Aquarium and the Art Institute of Chicago, theatrical performances, and so much more that happens a short trip away from campus. Depending on the passport destination, SOA provides either charter bus transportation or a personal CTA day-pass to travel to and from campus. Students collect stamps for each event they participate in and can earn points for an activity or item at the end of their academic experience.
Here is how to join in on the fun:
