About University of Chicago

One of the most charming legends at the University of Chicago is that if a couple kisses on the bridge over Botany Pond, in the centre of Hyde Park campus, they are fated to get married. Situated eight miles south of downtown Chicago, the intricate neo-gothic architecture of UChicago, complete with towers, cloisters, and spires certainly offers a romantic backdrop. With over 16,000 (2017-18) enrolled students there are plenty of potential partners available.

Undergraduates can study more than 51 academic majors and 33 minors across the undergraduate division. In addition, UChicago offers more than 100 programs of study across five graduate divisions, six professional schools and the school of continuing education.

The origins of UChicago go back to 1856 but a generous gift from John D. Rockefeller enabled the establishment of the university in its current form as a private research and teaching institution in 1890 by the American Baptist Educator Society. Its founders made a commitment to rigorous academics for people of all backgrounds and this philosophy still guides the university today. It is one of the few highly selective colleges that provides aid based on both merit and need while maintaining its top ten national and international rankings.
