University of Chicago is set right in the middle of Chicago City. The 200 acre campus is a around one of the largest and most vibrant city in world but the college is in no way a party school. It's made for true intellectuals. Just like the supplement essays on the application, academics is like no other university. Economics, sociology, and political science. The university boasts celebrity professors such as James Watson (nobel laureate and architect of the DNA Double Helix) and Steven Levitt (author of Freakonomics). The university has a burgeoning social life with 14 fraternities and sororities, Division III sports, intramural sports, and all of Chicago. However, even the people that thrive in the social scene are also all extremely success academically. U of C is the place to be if you want the best education in the nation with a great city life.
