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.

Lizeth Gutierrez The Newberry Seminar was a wonderful experience, and it motivated me to pursue my Ph.D. right after undergraduate school. I loved the research I did there and was eager to continue to learn more about research methodologies, writing, and teaching. The seminar really helped me develop my writing, reading and oral skills. I highly recommend this program to anyone interested in graduate school.
