Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities

Chicago, Illinois

Living arrangements

Students in the Newberry seminar live in an apartment building in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast neighborhood and a few blocks walk from the Newberry Library.

Two students share each studio apartment (similar in size to a standard dorm room) with a kitchenette, bathroom and walk-in closet. The apartments are approximately 15' x 18' and are furnished with one or two chairs, tables, lamps, ovens, and compact refrigerators. Some apartments have Murphy beds; others have regular twin beds. It's an ideal location for young people living in the city.

Kelsey Cole After all the time I've spent studying hard in school and getting good grades, I never really valued the process of learning. But through the Newberry Seminar in the Humanities, I found that the pure desire to learn and to unearth something which has never before been examined is a reward beyond any outside praise or recognition, and comes from the great pride of discovery.

—Kelsey Cole, Newberry Seminar, Fall 2007
