About the University of Chicago

For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on the University of Chicago (UC) campus, eat in the same dining hall as its undergrads and students ages 13+ can even stay overnight. Digital Media Academy selected UC not only because of its impeccable reputation as a liberal arts college, but also because of its superior campus location within the Midwest’s premier city.

Explore UC’s campus quadrangles, visit the impressive (and non-denominational) Rockefeller Memorial Chapel, see Robie House (designed by Frank Lloyd Wright), take in the famous Henry Moore sculpture “Nuclear Energy,” gaze on classics of modern art at The Renaissance Society gallery and tour the site of the 1893 World’s Fair — which featured the world’s first Ferris Wheel.

Founded: 1890, by the American Baptist Education Society with donated money from oil magnate John D. Rockefeller.

Campus Size: Located in Chicago’s Hyde Park community, just seven miles from Chicago’s downtown area, at 5801 South Ellis Avenue. The heart of the 211-acre campus is found at the intersection of 58th Street and University Avenue.

Scientific Discoveries: UC played a key role in several major scientific developments of the 20th century. The school’s George Herbert Jones Laboratory is where plutonium was first isolated in 1940. The university was also the site of the first artificial, self-sustained nuclear reaction in 1942, led by physicist Enrico Fermi. In addition, radiocarbon dating was developed at UC.

Influential Think-Tank: UC has been highly influential academically, giving rise to several important schools of thought. “Free Market” economic ideas sprang from UC economics instructor and Nobel laureate Milton Friedman (and are now called “the Chicago school of economics”). Also, UC had the first independent sociology department in the U.S., and was the site where the political-science approach called behavioralism was developed.

Local Attractions: Chicago is one of America’s truly great cities, and a vacation wonderland. Nearby attractions include the Museum of Science and Industry, the Art Institute of Chicago, Adler Planetarium and the Field Museum. Plus, visit Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower, and one of the tallest buildings in the world). Enjoy incredible shopping along the city’s famous “Miracle Mile.” Culturally, Chicago is known as “the Home of the Blues,” with plenty of local venues for hearing this and other types of music. Summer sports include Major League Baseball with the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Cubs.

Famous Alumni: UC graduates have distinguished themselves in many arenas and 87 Nobel laureates have been affiliated with the school. Before his election to the U.S. Senate, President Barack Obama taught for several years as a Senior Lecturer at the UC Law School. Astronomers Carl Sagan and Edwin Hubble (of Hubble Telescope fame) attended UC. So did business giants such as Oracle founder/CEO Larry Ellison, Morningstar founder/CEO Joe Mansueto and Bloomberg CEO Daniel Doctoroff. Major writers like Kurt Vonnegut Jr., Philip Roth, Saul Bellow and Roger Ebert all attended the school. In addition, numerous journalists graduated UC, including “Washington Post” publisher Katherine Graham and columnist David Broder and “New York Times” columnist David Brooks.

The University of Chicago has long been established as an influential institution of higher learning. The university includes various graduate programs and six professional schools, along with its undergraduate programs that offer degrees in 50 different majors. A powerful research center, UC partially manages Argonne National Laboratory as well as Fermilab, a nearby particle physics laboratory. UC serves a total enrollment exceeding 15,000 students.
