University of Chicago

My daughter and her friend and I went on another college visit this weekend to the University of Chicago.  Chicago has been high on her list for a while and this visit confirmed it in spades.  I think she would move in tomorrow if they let her.  She’ll be sending in her application in the next day or two – keep your fingers crossed!
As usual, I took some pictures of the buildings. While most of the campus is very beautiful, old Gothic architecture (apparently I didn’t take any pictures of these buildings), the Regenstein Library has an interesting exterior.  I’m not sure I can call it beautiful, but the overlapping planes are very textural.  You can see how big it is in the side view.  They are building an addition that looks like a very large plastic bubble.  Apparently, it will house several million books which can be accessed by a robotic arm!

This is a picture of one of the study rooms in the student union – I don’t know if I would get any work done in such an amazing space!

We also managed a very quick visit to the Art Institute of Chicago.  More on that later.

    A friend of mine went there and loved it. I'm sure your daughter will get in and love it!
