Admit Weekend II Recap

"You Are Here."

Over 400 admitted students and their partners invaded the Hyde Park Center from April 20-22 for Admit Weekend II. Students experienced a variety of events, ranging from information sessions on career services and financial aid, to student panels on housing and Random Walks, to hands-on LEAD activities. Saturday evening was capped off by a send-off dinner at Union Station, followed by an informal night out at a local club where admits and current students celebrated admission or the impending end of the academic year.

Admitted students trickled in throughout Friday, joining their current student hosts for breakfast and then heading off to a day packed with activities. Spouses and significant others had their own events to attend but linked up with their partners for meals and the day-ending LPF with Mexican food and all kinds of beverages, as well as student groups that had set up tables across the Rothman Winter Garden.

Other activities on Saturday and Sunday included model classes and a tour of Chicago on bus, which took students around the city's monuments and residential neighborhoods. Deans Ted Snyder and Rose Martinelli were on hand to welcome students on Friday and Mandel Hall and at the Saturday night reception.

For everyone who attended Admit Weekend, thanks for coming! We hope you learned about what makes Chicago GSB such a spcecial place and, most importantly, that you had a great time. See you in the fall!
