First, I would like to say that any info you provide would be appreciated.


I am from Washington DC, 19 years old and currently attending American University majoring in Info tech & finance. But would like to transfer to either DePaul or Loyola..(hopefully)

1. How are the colleges? are they big name schools in the Chicago area as far as employment is concerned?

2. I would be living in chicago for 3 years so I need a good spot to call home if the dorm situation don't work out, Any recommendation??

3. How is life in Chicago when compared to Washington DC? will I be subjected to cultural shock??

4. I half Italian and half ethiopian, I know there are a lot of Italians but are they in the city?? what about Ethiopians, any ethiopian restaurants? where do most reside?

5. Is the city welcoming? do I have to go out of my way to make friends?? I plan on exploring the city and it is one of my main reasons for moving.

6. Is it that much colder than Washington DC? or is it just hype?


I know it is a lot of questions, BUT I WOULD REALLY APPRECIATE IT

You may want to post this in the Chicago Forum. Where you would want to live would very greatly on which school you decided to attend.

Please do not ask people that do this to make another post. Ask them (or ask the mod yourself) to ask the mod to move it.
