Our choir performed at Millar Chapel last month, a beautiful venue but in dire need of a lighting upgrade. One of the most breathtaking examples of stained glass use in America but at night there is no provision for lighting the windows.

We used the food courts for 6 days while visiting a patient. The variety is excellent and the food is very good and reasonable priced. We recommend it. There is a TGI Fridays nearby that also is good.

I am an Evanston resident and often walk along the lakefront path and make my way up to Sheridan Road to walk through the campus. There is much in the way of architectural detail with the mixture of old and new buildings on the campus-library,...More
