More about the Trip to Chicago
The trip to Chicago is an all-day adventure. The bus leaves Building 3 at 8am and arrives back at about 11:30pm. Thursday, November 10 was specifically chosen for a couple of reasons. First, Thursday evenings are free at the Art Institute and it’s open until 8pm. The second reason we selected this date is because the next day is a holiday at BHC – which means some well-earned rest after a full day for students. So clear your calendar and reserve your spot!
