Chicago is a vibrant, beautiful city located in the state of Illinois in the United States. Situated on the shores of Lake Michigan, Chicago offers students the ideal combination of exciting city life and beaches with access to this nearly 500-kilometer-long lake. In addition, Chicago is called the “City in a Garden” for its 3,000 hectares of parks for students to study in or just enjoy.

Chicago was founded in the 1770s by a trader named Jean Baptiste Point du Sable. When the Illinois & Michigan Canal linked the Mississippi River to Lake Michigan in the 1800s, Chicago’s prominence grew as it became a major trading post. The development of a railroad system brought even more people and goods through Chicago, increasing its importance. The Chicago of today is the busiest aviation center in the United States and 50% of all railroad freight passes through Chicago.
