Center for International Education

Studying abroad can be one of the most memorable experiences of your life. It allows students the opportunity to learn about the world and other cultures through first hand experiences.

Studying abroad can help you learn to speak another language, to appreciate other cultures along with your own and to challenge yourself. You can learn to take initiatives, communicate despite barriers, handle new or difficult situations, adapt to new environments and appreciate diversity. Moreover, it can be a great path to self-discovery and looks great on a resume!

Choosing to study abroad is one of the most important decisions you can make. To get started, contact Kelly Reidy, Center for International Education (CIE) director, at 773-298-3780 or via email at

Student Testimonial

Mike Noonan"Spending a semester abroad in Tokyo was one of the best decisions I have ever made ... The classes I took were academically stimulating and enriching ... Riding the train, enjoying the night-life, singing Karaoke and spending time with my friends were all part of my everyday life in Japan. I would recommend studying abroad to anyone who wants to expand their worldview and have a great experience."
--Mike Noonan, Tokyo, Japan
