Reimaginations Discussion Group

Reimaginations will return in Week 3 and continue to take place every Thursday in the Tiffin Board Room at International House. Thinkers from different countries and disciplines come together in order to reimagine crucial concepts of the human experience. Keep an eye out for topic announcements on our Facebook Group.


Show Me Chicago Trips

International House GRAD Interns organize regular trips to must see places around Hyde Park and the rest of the city. Past trips have included Lincoln Park Zoo, Shedd Aquarium, White Sox baseball game, theatre trips, as well as various Chicago neighbourhoods including Chinatown, Greektown and Pilsen. This is a great way to explore the city with new friends! 


Watch Parties

International House often hosts watch parties for various sporting and music events. Past watch parties have included the Superbowl, Oscars, Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony, Eurovision Song Contest, and this past summer we showed live screenings of the FIFA World Cup soccer matches. 


Summer Mixers at the Courtyard
