What impressed you positively?

"The friendliness of the EVERYONE there. The windows are really quite nice- great views of the city from nearly every floor. The way the buildings are all connected to each other- Chicago can get really cold in the winter! The cooperativity of the students. The way the profs give the students a packet of everything they need to know for the class instead of using a notes service. The high-tech lecture halls. The location- so close to so many great Chicago things. The amount of people that have stayed at Rush for so long because they simply like it there. " Report Response
