Big Trip: Chicago

The LC BIG Trip: Chicago

As part of your Learning Community experience, you are invited to join an exciting trip to Chicago, IL! This is a great opportunity for you to learn about possible career options and hear from professionals currently working in your field. You’ll also get to experience some of Chicago’s world-renowned sites.

This trip will be a great opportunity to bond with members of your Learning Community and your Learning Community Mentor.

There will also be several other Learning Communities traveling with us, so you will get to know other students from a variety of backgrounds and interests.

The trip will take place Thursday, October 1 through Saturday, October 3, 2015. We have several activities planned, as well as time for each Learning Community to participate in a “behind the scenes” tour of a business or organization related to your community’s specific focus.

We’re still finalizing some specifics, but will be sending out information to you both digitally and through the mail later in the summer with additional details.

  • Advertising & PR: Opening the Door to Communication Careers
  • Business Around the World: Global Perspectives
  • Business Leaders: Start your Future Today
  • Discover the Classroom: A Passion for Teaching
  • Discover the Healthy Human: Nutrition & Health Sciences
