Signature Class Events

Signature Class Events take place in iconic venues around the city to celebrate undergraduate students and their many accomplishments as part of the UChicago community. Our hope is that these events offer students a chance to explore new parts of the city and celebrate with their friends outside of the classroom. The College is excited to host these events and we hope to see you there!
