Welcome New Students!
We hope you are ready for a really exciting semester. Do you remember your visit to the library during orientation? Were you unable to make it to orientation this year? Not to worry, here are some of our Orientation Leaders to offer some tips on life in Chicago and give some great advice on how you spend your time at Roosevelt University. You might even end up with some ideas for new neighborhoods to visit, and restaurants to try!
Meet Gail Concepcion:
What are you studying here at RU?
I am majoring in IMC with a concentration on Public Relations, and minoring in Sociology.
What is your favorite thing about the RU library?
I absolutely LOVE how the library is one of the most dependable places in all of RU… mainly because it opens on time and the staff never fails to assist.
Do you have a favorite restaurant in Chicago? Where is it? Close to campus or in a near-by neighborhood?
One of my favorite restaurants in Chicago is off the red line in the Lakeview neighborhood called Pick-Me-Up Café. It’s a cute, darling, trendy little place with AMAZING food. However, if I want something on campus I tend to lean towards Giordano’s Pizzeria or Wingstop!
What is the best part about living in Chicago? Do you dislike anything about living in Chicago?
The best part about living in Chicago is that there is NEVER anything NOT to do. Your CTA-pass will take you anywhere you need to go, thus, adventures await you!
Do you have any advice for students who have just joined the Roosevelt community?
Be involved on campus. It will add so much more to your experience here at Roosevelt University and the city of Chicago. Welcome!!!
Thanks for the great advice, Gail! Have a great semester.
