Incoming IIT Architecture graduate students were invited to the 2017 Admitted Graduate Student Weekend.

The weekend began on a Friday afternoon with faculty presentations discussing details of the architecture curriculum, a student review, tours of the College of Architecture facilities, and a happy hour and dinner reception, topped off by a White Sox baseball game. 

The weekend continued on Saturday when admitted students joined faculty and current students on a Chicago Architecture Foundation Skyline Vistas trolley tour. The 1-1/2 hour tour made several stops, including the iconic skyline view from the Adler Planetarium,  the Wolf Point & River Walk development, and the Rookery building by Burnham & Root, whose lobby was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The tour was followed by lunch at Elephant and Castle at 185 N Wabash Ave.
