Hi everyone! If you are reading this, you somehow made it through those truly awful cold days. After the polar vortex, the Midwest was treated with some great weather!
This past weekend, I left Chicago and visited a friend at University of Iowa in Iowa City. One great thing I have found about living in Chicago is the Megabus system. I took a Megabus from Chicago to Iowa City, and it went very smoothly. If you are considering coming to DePaul but are worried about missing your friends, I highly recommend taking a Megabus to go visit them. The Megabus is a cheap way to get around when you do not have a car in the city. It is also a great substitute for a plane because you can save a lot of money. The Megabus can take you anywhere around the United States, and it is great for a student on a budget. I have also taken a Megabus to Madison, Wisconsin as well as to my home city Minneapolis, Minnesota.
While I did have a fun time seeing my friend and getting to explore a new city, I missed Chicago a lot. It reminded me of how cool it is to go to college in the middle of a big city with so many opportunities and things to do. Now that the polar vortex is over, I will be sure to spend this next week enjoying the (mostly) warm weather.
