Campus Visit Activity Descriptions

Information Session
Information sessions are hosted by an admissions officer and are best for visitors in the early stages of their MBA research. This session will provide you with a general overview of the Kellogg curriculum, global opportunities, Career Management Center services, culture and admissions application information. If you have already attended an offsite information session, the information covered is the same.

Global Hub Tour & Lunch with Kellogg Students
Join us for a tour of the Global Hub led by a Kellogg student. The tour is focused on providing an in-depth view of student life at Kellogg. During the tour, you will see Kellogg from the student perspective and learn about Kellogg's culture, Evanston, academics, housing, interviewing, student organizations and much more. After the tour you will be able to enjoy an engaging lunch with students. Lunch is provided.

Getting Here & Parking

Air
Major airlines fly into both O’Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport. O’Hare Airport is approximately 45 minutes from Kellogg and Midway Airport is approximately 60 minutes from Kellogg, but you may want to allow more time for traffic.

Taxi
Taxi service from both airports can be arranged in advance of your visit for a reduced fare. Pre-arranged rides start at approximately $35 from O’Hare and $50 from Midway. For up-to-date fare information, please contact a taxi service directly. 
Parking 
We are happy to provide a parking permit for visitors that drive to campus. Upon arriving, park at either the South Campus Parking Garage (1847 Campus Drive) or the North Campus Parking Garage (2311 North Campus Drive.) The North Campus Parking Garage is closer to the Global Hub. Before leaving campus make sure to ask the staff for a validated parking ticket to exit the garage.

Public Transportation

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.

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