4 Things to do This Summer in Hyde Park

As summer is almost upon us (just another week and we’re free!), many UChicago students may be staying in Hyde Park for internships, research, classes, etc. Whether youre excited about it or not, summer may be a really great time to go to all the events you never could because of the stresses of school. So for those of you, like myself, that are staying in Hyde Park this summer, I have compiled a list of some fun events worth checking out. Obviously there are more events going on than the few I’ve picked, so if you’re looking for more to do, there will definitely be something for everyone!
