What to Do

We look forward to welcoming you to campus! During the summer, Kellogg has a selection of activities for campus visitors. Please note that only students from our 1 Year and MMM programs are present on campus before September 28th and as a result, offerings are slightly more limited during this period of time. As noted below, our regular visit schedule including class visits, student-led tours and daily information sessions will resume in late September.
Summer Information Sessions
Offered Friday, September 18, and Friday, September 25, from 10:00am - 11:00am.
Our Information Session is a perfect event to introduce you to our MBA Programs. You'll have the opportunity to meet an Admissions Officer, ask questions specific to your needs and meet others who are interested in a Kellogg MBA.

Self-Guided Tours
Available during business hours from 8:30am - 4:00pm.
Self-guided tours let you experience the Kellogg community from an insider’s perspective. Tours were created by current students and the Office of Admissions with the Kellogg visitor in mind. Tours take approximately 30 minutes from start to finish.

The Chicago Transit Authority (CTA) maintains an extensive system of elevated trains (also known as “the L”) and buses throughout Chicago and Evanston. The train stop closest to Kellogg is the Purple Line Foster stop on Church and Davis Streets. The 201 bus departs from the Howard St. terminal and stops on the corner of Foster and Sheridan, directly in front of the Kellogg School.

Be advised, while inexpensive, taking the CTA from the airport can take up to 90 minutes and requires transferring trains.
