The 11th Annual Summer Academic Ombudspersons Meeting at DePaul University is a great reason to visit Chicago in the summertime, but it’s not the only reason! If you have not already registered to attend, co-organizer Craig Mousin offers the Top 10 Reasons to visit Chicago in July.

10. Art and Culture! The Art Institute of Chicago will have just opened a New Exhibit--Impressionism, Fashion, and Modernity. Explore the fascinating relationship between art and fashion during the late 19th century with nearly 80 paintings by Impressionist masters such as Caillebotte, Degas, Manet, Renoir, and Seurat. Visit Chicago’s many fantastic museums, and the Shedd Aquarium.
9.  Chicago theater! Broadway in Chicago The Book of Mormon is in town. You may also enjoy Cirque Shanghai at Navy Pier.
8.  Baseball! The Chicago White Sox are in town the week before our meeting, playing the Tigers and then the Royals. The Chicago Cubs play the Milwaukee Brewers on July 29, 30, and 31 at historic Wrigley Field.
