Your campus extends beyond the classroom

Cultural immersion cannot be taught through lectures and reading.  One must fully engage in enlightening activities to fully understand the social impact and cultural deepening they have on personal, academic and professional growth. Robert Morris University Illinois offers programs like the Chicago Experience, study abroad, and service learning to enhance our already diverse community of learners.  Here are just a few examples of how our students have been immersed into the Chicago Experience:

  • Surgical Technology students assisted in a halo assembly during surgery at the University of Chicago Medical Center
  • Graphic design students competed in a creative bootcamp hosted by Leo Burnett where they created ad campaigns for real clients
  • ENG 211 and SSC 270 classes got the Chicago Urban experience at Fatso’s Last Stand in Ukrainian Village for some Chicago hotdogs
  • Biology students visited the Evolving Planet exhibit at the Field Museum and completed an assignment reflecting on how their hypothesis compared to what they learned at the exhibit

RMU is located steps away from everything the city of Chicago has to offer. There is no better place to earn your degree than in a setting which satisfies every element a student could hope for. We are proud to be located in the #3 rated college city for students in the U.S.
