Visiting a university campus is an important part of assessing whether a school is a good fit for a graduate student. Prospective students will want to examine the programs of study, meet faculty and fellow students, and tour the campus. For out-of-town students, a look around the campus’s surrounding community is especially important because these students will make a home for themselves in a new city.

“When I first visited the Roosevelt University campus, everyone was nice and welcoming,” said McKenna O'Shea, Roosevelt University Clinical Psychology PsyD student from Southampton, New York. “I fell in love with Chicago right away. There is so much to do, even as a busy graduate student. It’s great to have so many options for ways to relax and forget about work for a bit.”

Charlotte Cherne, a native of Riverside, California, is studying in Roosevelt’s Master of Fine Arts in Creative Writing Program. Charlotte loves the many dining options Chicago has to offer. Chicago is a global city and, so too, is its cuisine. “From Cuban to Portuguese, and Chinese to Greek, students will find that deep dish pizza isn’t the only dining option in Chicago!”

Kelly Erdman, Graduate Admission Counselor for the College of Arts and Sciences, has written a blog post with helpful tips for prospective graduate students as they visit college campuses and communities.
