Chicago is more than the South Loop

Why? Because Chicago is a city of neighborhoods. Columbia College calls the South Loop home, but what you see on the way to class is just a small piece of this marvelous place. There is awe-inspiring history and culture embedded in each and every “L” stop.

New students, we call upon you to take the “Ventra U-Pass Challenge.” You have 2 weeks to pick up your pass, find a spare afternoon, grab a pal, and hop on the CTA to explore a new neighborhood. 

Learn about the what/when/where of picking up your pass here and get maps, apps, and so much more over at the Chicago Transit Authority.

Tag your adventures with #VentraUpassChallenge and ccc_advising will share college advisors’ tips for the best things to do in Chicago.
