IIT’s campus comes alive once all the faculty and staff go home. Here are some snapshots of what students are up to on Main Campus after dark.
7:00 P.M. Jamming in the Park
Live music comes from Morton Park, where these students were relaxing during finals week.
8:00 P.M. Service with a Smile
It’s never too late for caffeine when you’re 20 years old, and the brew is fresh at Global Grounds, the popular alumni-owned espresso kiosk in The McCormick Tribune Campus Center.
9:00 P.M. Right on Schedule
Part of IIT’s charm is its proximity to Chicago, and students are understandably drawn to the city after dark.
10:00 P.M. Officer Garrett
Officer Anthony Garrett shown here left, with MTCC security officer Ronald Williams takes a personal interest in the safety of IIT’s students. “I get to know people, if not by name, at least by face,” he says. “That makes my job a lot easier and helps keep everyone safe.”
11:00 P.M. A Little Night Music
The student-run Radio IIT, 88.9 FM, broadcasts 24/7 and covers nearly every musical genre. You can listen from anywhere in the world through streaming online video. Tune in at http://radio.iit.edu.
MIDNIGHT If You Feed Them, They Will Come
There’s still not much that students enjoy more than free food. The Finals Midnight Breakfast drew hundreds of students from all over campus. The MTCC even stayed open all night so students could escape their dorm rooms.
