Roosevelt University
Location: Chicago, IL
Year Established: 1945
Student population: 6,100 (400 international students)

Named after the late President Franklin Roosevelt and supported by first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Roosevelt University is an independent, non-profit, metropolitan university. It has two campuses, in downtown Chicago and suburban Schaumburg, Illinois. It attracts a diverse student community – like the Roosevelts, it places a high value on equal opportunity and was one of the first US universities to accept students regardless of their background. Today it’s highly regarded for the quality of its teaching and research.
The campus offers a College of Arts and Sciences, the Chicago College of the Performing Arts, student services, academic resources and the Murray-Green library. The Auditorium Theatre is a Chicago landmark and has hosted the likes of the Bolshoi, Broadway musicals, Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young, Bruce Springsteen and Bob Dylan. There are plenty of modern facilities including laboratories, theatres, a gymnasium and a university radio station.
Unique characteristics
The University offers 116 degree programs across the performing arts, education, liberal arts, business, science and professional studies, as well as numerous online courses and opportunities for community outreach and career development. More than 150 courses incorporate service learning. Roosevelt offered Chicago's first bachelor's degrees in sustainability studies and social justice studies. 
At Roosevelt you’re surrounded by academia – it forms part of a community called the ‘South Loop Educational Corridor’, which also comprises DePaul University, Columbia College Chicago, Robert Morris University and the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. It’s a short walk from Lake Michigan and the world-class attractions of Chicago, with its skycrapers, sports, festivals and varied cultural scene.
