The University’s combination of Victorian Gothic and Collegiate Gothic style architecture –along with the Midway Plaisance, a large park through the center of campus– makes UChicago one of the most distinguished and iconic campuses in the country. Equaled by few, the University of Chicago consistently ranks among the top-ten universities in the world.

The University offers students degrees across its undergraduate college and various professional schools; economics, sociology, political sciences and law school are several of UChicago’s top-ranked programs. There are more than 400 student organizations and clubs on campus, including the nation’s longest running student film society. Home to more than 140 research centers and institutes, students are actively encouraged to critically engage and freely interact with the resources and world around them. Approximately 10% of the student body is involved with Greek life on campus. The Chicago Maroons compete at the Division III level and offer 17 varsity sports programs.

Notable alumni, attendees and faculty include 85 Nobel Prize recipients, Larry Ellison (founder of Oracle), and author Kurt Vonnegut.
