“It is hopeless for the occasional visitor to try to keep up with Chicago – she outgrows his prophecies faster than he can make them. She is always a novelty, for she is never the Chicago you saw when you passed through the last time.”
-Mark Twain, Life on the Mississippi
In 2005 CTU began a major campus renewal project with the construction of a ninety-five thousand square foot, five-story Academic and Conference Center. This new space has enhanced student life by creating classrooms with integrated technology, expanding meeting and assembly spaces, and introducing a state-of-the-art library to help enhance research. The Academic and Conference Center continues to accommodate a growing student body as well as a number of public programs and events, affording great opportunities for learning and living to our community.
Mass is celebrated regularly at CTU in the Assembly Hall/Chapel on the 2nd floor of 5416 S. Cornell Ave. Please call to confirm time (773) 371.5400. All are welcome!
