August Updates from Chicago Semester

Welcoming Students this Fall

We are excited to welcome our Fall 2020 students to Chicago in the coming weeks. This fall we will be utilizing Chicago parks and outdoor spaces for classes and orientation, engaging students in virtual and outdoor fine art events and creating opportunities for internships to be partially completed online. We have been working hard to create innovative and responsible ways to engage in experiential learning in the current state of public health, while continuing to provide a dynamic semester experience for students. Students are also asked to sign a community pledge, recognizing the privilege and responsibility of caring for and participating in the Chicago Semester community. We have an eager group of students, and we look forward to serving and walking alongside them this semester.
