Top 10 Chicago Must-Do’s for INTEGRATE Attendees


INTEGRATE Chicago is less than two weeks away! Do you have your trip planned out yet?—we do!

Because our program has current students and graduates in 49 states, we sought out to get an insider’s perspective on “The Windy City.” Here is what some Chicago locals from the West Virginia University IMC program recommended:

  1. Check out the city’s “Magnificent Mile,” filled with shops, restaurants and sights. While you’re there, grab a slice of Chicago-style deep dish pizza at Lou Malnati’s Pizzeria, a local haven.
  2. Spend some time at the Navy Pier, a location frequented by visitors. More than 3,300 feet long, the Navy Pier is home to the Centennial Wheel and offers some great people-watching.
  3. Stop at Millennium Park to take a photo with one of Chicago’s most iconic landmarks—“The Bean.”
  4. Catch a show at Adler Planetarium’s Grainger Sky Theater and feel like you are flying through space.
  5. Step back in time at the Green Mill Cocktail Lounge. This 100-year-old saloon used to be Al Capone’s hangout, but now it’s best known for its jazz music.
  6. Take a trip to Hot “G” Dog for an authentic, Chicago-style hot dog that will not disappoint.
  7. Visit the Art Institute of Chicago. Housing more than 300,000 pieces, this museum has something for everyone.
  8. Say hello to Granddad at Shedd Aquarium. The 82-year-old Australian Lungfish is one of the oldest aquarium fish in the world.
  9. See Chicago from a whole new perspective with Tilt. This attraction, part of 360 Chicago, shows visitors what it’s like to look down at the city from 1,000 up.
  10. Watch the sunset from Willis Tower’s Skydeck—Unforgettable!

So, as you make your way to INTEGRATE Chicago, keep this list of adventures in mind! (And, if you complete any of the activities from the list above, don’t forget to take a photo and tag us!) For more information about the event or to reserve your spot, please visit
