The Univeristy of Chicago is one of the top 20 schools in the nation. It has one of the most nobel laureate faculities too and most of them still teach undergraduate classes. It is located in Hyde Park in chicago's south side and the campus is surprisingly small compared to other institutions. I have to praise their financial aid dept for granting so many grants/scholarships to assist the needy so that the students do not have to pay the full $35000+ a year. Each year's class is not too big, and each class size ranges from 100-200 for general classes to 20 in more specialty classes. I was even in a class of just 6 people for some senior classes. Their athletics facility is awesome as are their intramural clubs. If you ever wanted to learn a skill or sport, there is so much to offer in the evenings. Their dormatories are good, ranging from hotel style in Shoreland, to doubles in Pierce, and singles in Maclean house. Their cultural clubs are great too. Kudos to CUSA for their yearly new year show!!
