Anonymous said: Hi! I'm actually a prospective UChicago student, and I absolutely love the school. What's been your experience there?

Hello!  Do you have a particular area you’re interested in, or want to hear more about?

My experience has been an amazing whirlwind. It’s so hard to describe it all here, but I’ll try my best for some of my favorite things.

Housing: I stayed in the dorms (dorm: Burton-Judson, house: Linn-Mathews) for my first two years. I absolutely loved the housing system, and the way that each House has its own (fluid) personality. You’re given an immediate family, and the large size of each House allows you to find a close friend group (if you want!) within it. I ended up moving off campus (typical after your 2nd or 3rd year) and living with my four best friends from the House. And even as ex-residents, we’re still given a lot of opportunities to continue to be active in House life if we so choose.

Classes: I’m an English major and Classics minor, which means my life fucking rules. The English department was put under younger management a few years ago, and now offers some very specific and niche classes that you wouldn’t expect to see. The Classics department is small and cozy, and there’s a large chance you’ll have amazing profs multiple times. They, and the NELC department, offer a surprisingly large range of options of classes. Where else would you get to fulfill your 6th grade dream of learning Egyptian hieroglyphics?

Study Abroad: Easily some of, if not the best experiences I have had at UChicago. I did a thematic English&History major program in London and a Civ program in Athens, and I cannot begin to tell you how much these opportunities meant to me. The small size of the programs, the UChicago professors, the overnight field trips- it was like traveling with your extended family.

I hope that helps a little! Please let me know if you want to hear about anything else :D and good luck!

I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.

Shame on you, Curvy Kate. Shame on you.
