McHenry Students

On April 25th, 80 first-year AP Human Geography students from McHenry East and West High Schools boarded buses early in the morning to make their way to Roosevelt University’s Chicago Campus for an annual visit. For the past five years, this visit has allowed students from the northwest suburb to learn more about the opportunities and benefits that a college education can provide, as well as giving students the chance to visit an urban university campus. The annual visit is the result of a contact between Roosevelt alumna Sandee Dwire (BA history, with honors, ’04 and MA history, ’11), who teaches social studies at the McHenry High Schools, and Roosevelt history Professor Chris Chulos, who had Sandee in several of his classes.
