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.

Gerry Battersby I am currently applying to graduate school, and I can honestly say that my experience as an undergraduate research fellow with ACM at the Newberry Library have taught me a great deal as a student, and has set me apart from the other applicants. I was able to spend five months outside of my comfort zone and gain valuable experience at the same time. When people say that these programs have changed their lives they are not lying; I will never forget the people I met or the places I went, and I am sure I will continue to benefit from my experiences for years to come.
