Favorite fun fact about Roosevelt

When Roosevelt University was originally founded as Thomas Jefferson College it was financially backed and supported by the International Ladies’ Garment Workers’ Union – which was once one of the largest labor unions in the U.S., one of the first to have a primarily female membership, and a key player in the labor history of the U.S. in the 1920s and 1930. Several merges and reorganizations to present day, this union is now known as UNITE HERE.

What makes Roosevelt unique/stand out from the other Chicago area colleges?
