Fun Fall Events

MALS/IDS is lucky to have graduate students from all walks of life who enjoy a myriad of events. Whether you are a seasoned Chicago native or a brand new face to the city, we have compiled a list of fun events around campus and/or the Chicago area that (hopefully!) has something for everyone to enjoy.

  • DePaul Welcome Week is hosting a few events the first week of the upcoming quarter. From Sept. 3-15, these DWW events are meant to get you situated around campus, learn about DePaul student life, and have fun! All you need is your student ID to attend.
    • Taste of DePaul (Sept. 3 from 4pm to 8pm on the LPC Quad) – Try foods from the Lincoln Park area!
    • After Taste: The Lip Sync Battle (Sept. 3 from 7pm to 11pm in the LPC Student Center Room 120AB) – After you’ve eaten, attend for musical battles, prizes, and more (free) food.
    • Trolleys to Target (Sept. 4 from 12pm to 5pm at the LPC Student Center) – Take a trolley service to Target for anything you might have forgotten to bring with you.
    • DePaul Does Labor Day (Sept. 5 from 11am to 3pm – meet in the LPC Student Center) – Explore Millenium Park, the zoo, the beach, and the “Bean!”

    • The Second City (Sept. 10 from 7pm to 10pm at the Merle Reskin Theatre) – Come see the famous improv comedy show where SNL stars such as John Belushi, Rachel Dratch, Chris Farley, and Tina Fey started out. It’s free!

  • Community Fest (Sept. 8 – 3:30pm to 6pm in the LPC Student Center Room 120AB): Community Fest is a welcome back celebration focused on the engagement and inclusion of multicultural and identity-based student organizations, the Center for Identity, Inclusion & Social Change and it is an intentional way for cultural student organizations to build stronger collaborative and relationships amongst their organizations and the DePaul Community.
  • Here is a wonderful list of events happening in the Chicago Area this month, as well as in September.
  • The DePaul Art Museum is excited to host SPECTRALINA (Aug. 18 from 6pm to 8pm), an audio-visual performance project by musician Dan Bitney of the band Tortoise and visual artist Selina Trepp. The performance combines image and sound to create a “visual music” in which each medium bears equal force. Free and open to everyone! (RSVP required.)
