Chicago, the windy city, is an urban dream come true for college students and recent graduates. One of the largest cities, with skyscrapers that jut across the skyline, Chicago does a great job accommodating its bustling population. It’s a city of neighborhoods, where the possibility of scouting for an affordable renting option isn’t so tall. There are plenty of work opportunities, wide roads and easy transportation options. It’s also much cleaner, with parks around every corner, and the possibility of going for a swim in the crystal clear waters of Lake Michigan. The beaches add to the scenery, though college students and recent graduates can also mix it up by admiring Impressionist works displayed at the Art Institute or a casual evening at one of its equally fabulous theaters. Chicago is as much of a sports town, and its restaurants and nightlife aren’t too shabby either. Abundant with friendly and accomplished people, Chicago promises to be both affordable and enjoyable for every kind of grad.
