check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Illinois_Institute_of_Technology also.Hey I have a question, Ive been researching universities in the Chicago area and UIC is probably my best bet for a major in architecture. Ive read all the stuff on their website, and was wondering if there was anyone on this forum that has gone there, or if there were any locals that could give me some information on how good of a school it is, reputation, cost of living, living on campus off campus, how the school is looked upon by employers ("O, he went to UIC....") that kind of thing or ("Wow, he graduated from UIC!"). Also, I've heard a lot about most of the student body commutes so there is not much happening after class. Is this true? Are there things happening after class such as parties etc. Last thing, where is a popular place for college students to hang out, do homework, etc. Any other input is surely welcome.
Hopefully it will be destroyed! That place has the evil security/ Tinley Park police, horrible sound and way to expensive everything. And besides, Alpine is a hell of a lot better anyway!Good news for music fans, looks like the venue formerly known as the World Music Theater will be on its way out in the next few years. Good riddance since the venue location, sound, and site lines in the place are awful.
The nation’s largest concert promoter, Live Nation, is looking to sell off several under-performing amphitheaters, including the First Midwest Bank Amphitheatre in Tinley Park, a spokesman confirmed Thursday.
There is no timetable for selling the Tinley Park venue, but Vlautin said Live Nation will not sell the land to any buyer who would use it as a concert site. The property is zoned for industrial use.
I always thought it would be cool if the city had a big (10-20k) outdoor amphitheater. When/if Charter One at Northerly Island is decommissioned I wonder if that could happen. Granted finding open space, willing neighborhood and dealing with parking that those venues like to cater to makes a city location problematic.
Milwaukee does it well with their Marcus Amphitheater though it needs a bigger lawn area.
I agree and I know that the site manager put a lot of work into it but it seems in the last year or two that it has not been updated. I was hoping that maybe there was another site similar.^ Wow, I've never seen that before. That website is a true goldmine
