在他们的单词

Our diverse student community is bonded together by a shared love of learning. 几十年来, 各种背景的学生, 地理位置, and intellectual interests who choose UChicago remark similarly: “在im体育官网注册,我终于有了家的感觉, 周围都是献身于心灵生活的人.”

"I chose UChicago because it had the most challenging and diverse academic program. I was instantly curious after looking over a list of classes—they ranged from typical sounding university classes, 例如《im体育注册》, 独特而令人惊讶的主题, 比如德国童话课程. This made me excited to learn in a way that no other prospective university had been able to do. I am now in my fourth year and am happy to say that my initial impression was correct. 通过我在这里的时间, I have been able to take a huge variety of classes and learn something interesting and new 对我来说." -Dasha Beniash, 2019届毕业生

"When I was deciding on schools, UChicago was an obvious first choice. im体育官网注册不仅提供世界级的学术, but also makes them accessible with its outstanding financial aid. 课程以外的, 这里的学生享受强调社区的住房计划, 对于一年级学生来说,什么是有价值的.

I knew from the start that this school would be a great fit for me." -娜奥米·甘茨,2019届毕业生

"I chose to attend UChicago to become immersed in a world with which I had no familiarity. As a fourth-year undergraduate who is of a first-generation and low-income background, I’ve become incredibly grateful for this environment in which desire and passion are equally important as hard work on the path to success. I have to come to believe that it is the little things at UChicago that make it unique as a post-secondary institution. The messages of encouragement written on the walls of bathroom stalls, 各种类型的社区, and the people who are committed to helping others on their path of growth and development are things that cannot be found elsewhere. 最重要的是, there is no other place that I know that acts as a host to a community of people and empowers them to make a difference both on-campus and beyond; and, 对我来说, 这是im体育官网注册不可缺少的独特之处." ——ken Leng, 2019届毕业生

"I chose UChicago because I knew from the moment I set foot on campus that this was going to be my home for the next four years. 对我来说, the decision was largely based off of the academic reputation; I wanted a new challenge and UChicago’s theoretical approach to learning was just that. I can safely say that no class I have taken here can be characterized as “easy,” but I can also definitely say that I’ve learned more in my short time at UChicago so far than I could have ever imagined. 但是,这个校园是 so much more than academics—much of my UChicago experience has to do with the people I have met. 这些都是我在住房系统里的经历, 我参与过的校园里的一系列rso, 还有我的教授和导师, 一手塑造了我是谁. 我真的觉得我找不到这么有激情的人, 聪明的, 和其他大学的爱心团体!" -拉克希·米塔尔,2021级

"I transferred to UChicago as a junior because I wanted to study the history and philosophy of mathematics. 这是一个小众专业,没有很多学校提供, 在那些这样做的人当中, im体育官网注册是最好的之一. 当我申请, I was hoping to be in an environment where I can converse freely with peers and professors who share my passion, 而我在im体育官网注册就能做到这一点. The vigorous history of science community here has supplied me with abundant inspiration, 指导, 的想法, 和免费的咖啡, 对此我将永远心存感激." -西莉亚·万,2019届毕业生
