Discover UChicago

Discover UChicago is a pre-admissions program organized by the Graduate Enrollment team in collaboration with University divisions and professional schools.

Discover UChicago offers talented individuals from traditionally underrepresented populations an opportunity to explore graduate education at the University of Chicago. Students will visit for two days of workshops, conversations with faculty and graduate students, and informal social events to expose prospective candidates to our vibrant campus community.

We invite current graduate students to meet with DU participants at the DU Graduate Student Mixer on Friday, November 8th from 4:00-6:00PM. Come interact with the prospective students at the Community Lounge in the Center for Identity + Inclusion. Food and beverages are provided. Click here to RSVP.
