Chicago is a city of neighborhoods—77 of them, in fact—each with
its own unique history and culture. Nestled in the city’s historic
South Side is Hyde Park, home to the University of Chicago and
Chicago Booth’s Charles M. Harper Center.
First settled in the 1850s, Hyde Park is filled with tree-lined streets,
cozy restaurants, eclectic shops, and some of the city’s best-
loved bookstores. Lake Michigan and the Museum of Science and
Industry are just blocks away from Harper Center, and downtown
Chicago is a quick commute by car or public transit.
Frank Lloyd Wright’s 1910 masterpiece, the Frederick C. Robie
House, is across the street from Harper Center. Designed by the
architect Rafael Viñoly, Harper Center combines architectural cues
from the Robie House and neighboring Rockefeller Chapel.
