En Route to UChicago

By now some of you are already on flights, roadtripping, teleporting, or otherwise on your journey to Chicago. For those of you currently in transit or else waiting to leave, how are you spending the last of your time before college? We recommend lots of hugs to your families, marathoning the Harry Potter films, eating chocolate, deep breaths, and thinking positively! Can’t wait to see you all around campus. I hope the 2012-2013 school year brings you all great things!

Maroon love,

I might, who knows, have been happier, if only because less introspective—nobody said the examined life is a lot of laughs—without the changes wrought in me by my years at the University of Chicago. Yet I would not trade in those three strange years for anything.

They say the hardest part of going to school at Harvard is “getting in,” implying that once you’re in, the work is moderate, the grades are slightly padded, and you can get by with relatively little stress; the real bitch is getting accepted at such a selective institution. Here at U of C, the…

You know in Mean Girls when Regina George says that Lindsay Lohan has a t-shirt with that hot guy’s face on it and she wears it under her clothes all the time? THAT WILL BE ME IN REAL LIFE. Except with this rockin’ UChi shirt because I love college more than hot guys. 

Well played!

I Can't Hear You Over The Forbes "America's Top Colleges List" Rankings

We’re number 4! This is great news for UChicago. Finally, it seems like our little school is getting the love and attention that it deserves! We even outranked Harvard and Yale. But NBD. We always knew we were awesome.
