Take advantage of all this beautiful city offers when you're not enjoying one of our Roosevelt homecoming events! 

Mural Walk - Featuring 21 murals by international household names as well as emerging artists, the Loop Mural Walk highlights a side of the Chicago Loop you have never seen before. Our urban landscape is ever-changing, and the impermanent nature of street art is part of its magic. Murals and route access are subject to change. 

Crime and Mob Tour - Escape into Chicago’s criminal underworld, where some of the most notorious criminals, mobsters, and gangsters resided. Drive around and see where Al Capone, The Untouchables, Hymie Weiss, and John Dillinger, among other thugs, hung out. Visit the sites of historic crime scenes including The Biograph Theatre, Holy Name Cathedral, and the St Valentine's Day Massacre, one of Chicago's most notorious murders.  

Waterfront Cruise - City Experiences offers uniquely elegant lunch, brunch, cocktail, and dinner outings while cruising the Chicago River and Lake Michigan. Our partners at City Experience invite you to use their Promo code ccd15 for 15% off all Chicago Cruises at CityExperiences.com.

This requirement also applies to guests attending performances in the O’Malley Theatre, the Miller studio theatre, Ganz Hall, or other CCPA facilities.

Guests can also fill out the self-assessment form on your mobile device by visiting roosevelt.edu/guest.
