Make this summer one to remember! Join the Alumni Association as we cruise down the Chicago River on Chicago’s Original Architecture Tour with President Terri Goss Kinzy, Mr. Scott Kinzy, and fellow Redbirds. Prior to the tour, the group will gather at Harold Washington College for breakfast before taking a brief walk to the dock at the Wrigley Building.
Be inspired by the captivating, visual art that is Chicago’s legendary architecture, and the exceptional architects who created this ever-changing, dynamic legacy for all to enjoy and admire.
