The end of September is just around the corner, you know what that means: It is time we exit out of this sun-soaked hibernation and begin the wonderful season that is Autumn! There is nothing quite like Autumn in Chicago–this city is filled with endless opportunities that provide fun for everyone.


Senior, Sammy Durojaiye ’19  was asked what her favorite fall tradition was. She stated, “I love corn mazes. They’ve been a tradition every year for my family and I, except we always have to drive out to the suburbs when we do them.” If you’re like Sammy and like corn mazes, than the Lincoln Park Fall Fest is perfect for you. Starting September 28th, Lincoln Park Zoo will open their annual festival filled with pumpkin patches, corn mazes, hay rides a ferris wheel and more!


If you are someone who enjoys photography, than you’re well aware of the fact that Chicago’s tree lined parks and streets can make the perfect shot. Senior, Daria Zelen ‘19 said, “I really love photography and taking pictures of the colored leaves is always fun to me.”  Places like Jackson Park in Woodlawn, or North Park’s Village Nature Center has breathtaking gardens and nature trails filled with woodland creatures and the best views for fall foliage.


So what are you waiting for? Get on out there and make the most of this season!
