Global Opportunities, Local Access

Universities. Outdoor recreation. Theater. World-class restaurants and retail. The arts. Museums, music, and culture… and that’s just in the first mile.

Chicago’s lakefront is one of the premier recreational centers in the nation and includes 24 beaches along 28 miles of shoreline, as well as many of the over 500 parks that make the city among the greenest in the United States.

The access afforded EDGE students by the program’s downtown location supports immersion in the opportunities that expand students’ horizons and inspire their passion for living.

Students can walk to everything they need and, being in the transportation hub of the city, can access any cultural, recreational, or educational opportunities that are further afield.

Therapeutic and wellness resources abound in the neighborhood, which is also abundant in employment and volunteering opportunities.
