UChicago is a beautiful school with incredibly driven students. Everyone is incredibly impressive- it can be intomidsting at times, but it also pushes you to be your best. The University is extremely rigorous but prepares you well for the future.

I have really, really enjoyed the University of Chicago so far! There are so many interesting classes, and the professors are without a doubt passionate and experienced in their fields. My school is centered on the idea of "the life of the mind," and encourages students to explore and develop a passion for learning, which is exactly what I love. For example, last year I decided to take Modern Yucatec Maya as a language, just for kicks, and it ended up not only being my favorite class, but also introduced me to a whole new world of opportunities. I actually got to use Maya with native Maya speakers while vacationing in Yucatán this past summer. UChicago is great for so many reasons, but mostly because it creates the perfect environment for students that are curious and eager to learn about anything and everything.
