Chicago-Kent CELEBRATES 25 YEARS AT "565" 

On July 20, hundreds of alumni,  faculty, students, staff and friends of Chicago-Kent celebrated 25 years at the 565 West Adams Street building. The building's concourse level, first, third, sixth and tenth floors were filled with activities, food, drinks and exhibits highlighting significant historical moments, famous visitors and the hidden gems that make "565" so special.  The program concluded with remarks from President Cramb, Dean Krent and President Emeritus Lew Collens.  

It's not too late to celebrate 25 at 565. View photos from the event on Flickr or take a virtual tour with Vamonde. Help us keep the momentum going by tagging yourself on Facebook, referring prospective students or contacting Career Services about a position for students or alumni.
