University of the Month – Roosevelt University
A Modern Education for a Modern World
Roosevelt University is a private institution based in the exciting city of Chicago, Illinois, America’s third largest city by population and No. 9 most competitive city in the world (The Economist, 2015). Studying in this incredible location will give you the American big city experience, as well as access to America’s second largest job market. Chicago is home to several Fortune 500 companies, and there are many internship and career opportunities available to Roosevelt students.
The curriculum offers well over 100 degree majors and around 40 Master’s programs. There is a strong focus on social justice programs, and graduates tend to be well-rounded, socially conscious leaders. Almost 60% of students who study for a degree at Roosevelt University find work within six months of graduating.
Roosevelt’s undergraduate and graduate programs are ranked #81 among regional Midwest universities in the US. It is also recognized as the 4th most ethnically diverse university in the region, which means that you will make friends from all over the world.
Roosevelt’s main campus is located in the 32-story Wabash Building, nestled among the skyscrapers of Chicago’s glittering skyline.
The vertical campus includes dormitories; which means you can live, study, and explore the city from the same place. The Wabash Building is just minutes away from several iconic Chicago landmarks, including Buckingham Fountain, Millennium Park, Monroe Harbor, South Michigan Avenue, the Shedd Aquarium, and the world famous Field Museum. Chicago’s elevated train system (known locally as the ‘L’) gives you easy access to the rest of the city and its 100+ neighborhoods.
The city is the perfect place for an international student to experience the excitement of urban American life. Chicago’s streets and neighborhoods will be as inspirational to your learning process as its classrooms and professors. At Roosevelt University, there is a whole new world to experience: inside your mind, and right outside your door.
