  • University of Illinois at Chicago

    The Muppet Movie just came out and it took me right back to my childhood love for the characters of Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker. What most people don’t know about these zany scientists is that they studied at the University of Illinois in Chicago. They also roomed together in an off-campus apartment next door to Ernie, his rubber ducky, and Bert.

     

    Researching UIC

    It is no surprise that Bunsen and Beaker chose UIC over any other school, since its main focus is on research. Whether your interest is scientific, cultural, political, or technological, professors at UIC will challenge you and help expand your thinking. It is really saying something when you realize that even Bunsen and Beaker don’t feel like nerds around their peers here. This is because the discoveries that result from experiments and research done by students and professors at UIC impact the world. Basically, students here are a worthy opponent for the powerful (collective) mind of Bunsen and Beaker, and the puppeteer that mans them. While there might be competition to get published, there is no need to compete for an off campus apartment since options are plentiful.

    Rubber Ducky You’re the One …

    …You make renting apartments lots of fun! This is the song Ernie sang to his rubber ducky in the bathtub of his newly rented apartment. Why is he so chipper? Because renting turned out to be easier than researching the latest nanotechnology. There are several apartment buildings surrounding campus that are student-friendly. University Village is just one example of an area that is close to campus and packed with students. For cheaper living, consider venturing into areas a little further from campus. apartment search guides is a great resource for exploring options around town. No matter what neighborhood you end up in, you can rest assured that getting to campus will be no problemo. This is because UIC provides students with a U-Pass, which affords you free access to any CTA bus or train. The puppeteer controlling your body isn’t eligible for a U-pass, unfortunately.

    Muppets Take Chicago

    Besides all the studying and living you’ll be doing around campus, you will be experiencing a city like no other. Chicago has everything you want and more. In places like Belmont or Lincoln Square, you will find artsy and funky shops and people, but just a bus ride away is Wrigleyville or the ESPN Zone, where you can settle down with the local sports fans and sip a beer. Speaking of beer, the nightlife in Chicago is the best. Although underage puppets might not be able to dive into Hungry Brain at 2319 W Belmont Ave for a drinking game, they can soak up some culture at The Field Museum, where admission is free on the second Monday of each month!

  • DePaul University

    Welcome To DePaul University

    Located in the Windy City of Chicago, prestigious DePaul University is known as the largest Catholic university in the nation. Despite its conservative roots—it was founded at the turn of the 19th century—the school is now a forward-thinking institution, respected especially for its research. School athletics play an important part in DePaul culture, and the ‘Blue Demon’ rages at all the school games. DePaul has numerous campuses spread across the Chicago Metropolitan area, and some extensions even reach into the suburbs.

     

    Housing Situation In & Around Campus

    You can get a jump on your apartment search using our convenient apartment guide, then go even further to get a feel for college life with our college blog. Apartments for rent in Chicago range from luxurious tower apartments by the harbor to your run-of-the-mill downtown complex.

    Getting Around And Everyday Life

    No matter where you live while at DePaul, there will be a ton of things to check out nearby. Stroll around some of the city parks, like those along the harbor: Lincoln Park that offers beautiful views of the lake, the Peggy Notebaert Nature Museum, the North Pond Nature Sanctuary. And for a little not-exactly-your-everyday recreation outdoors, you can hit up the Diversey Miniature Golf Course and Driving Range. Golf, in the city?! Yep. A useful directory for such ‘greens’ throughout Chicago can be found here. Beyond that? You have one of the biggest, most vibrant cities in America right outside your door.

Leave the car at home, and enjoy life on foot, bike or public transportation.

    Hyde Park has a huge range of great restaurants. Cafe Andalous is a student favorite, but there are all types of ethnic, American, and chain places to try out too. Thai food is especially popular with The Snail and Thai 55 getting top marks. The Medici and the Florian both compete for college business, so try their specials and deals. Downtown Chicago, a short distance away, has all the famous Chicago restaurants like Morton's Steakhouse, Boston Blackie's, and Charlie Trotters, making them great spots for when the parents are in town.

    While University of Chicago Phoenixes aren't exactly party animals, there are good bars to be found in the Hyde Park area. Most are quieter spots for having a few beers with friends. Find Forty Deuce and it will give you a feel for local watering holes. Otherwise, many students head to the North Shore area for nights out clubbing.

    The University of Chicago offers a fantastic education and a wonderful lifestyle - enjoy it!

  • Northeastern Illinois University

    Located in the Chicago neighborhood of North Park, Northeastern Illinois University is home to 12,000 students. Since the school has no resident halls, all students live off campus. The area is fairly walkable and public transportation is excellent.

    Since the student population is so ethnically diverse, you can also expect the same of neighborhood restaurants that cater to students. There's Cuban, Asian, Eastern European, and more to choose from. Try Midori's for Japanese and Ken's for Mandarin. There are burger places and other fast food places within easy walking distance of the campus too.

    All students commute and whether its a five minute walk or a twenty minute mass transit ride, you'll want to find a couple of neighborhood bars where you can meet friends after class. The Hourglass is one such bar, and the Montrose Saloon combines both sports bar and meeting place. At night, students from all the Chicago area universities head to the North Shore for the many bars and clubs. Tiffins is also a good pick. It combines Indian food and a lively bar.

    Northeastern Illinois University is a great pick, and once in your NIU apartment, you'll quickly find places to meet people and just to chill out after class.
