Sweet Home Chicago
Proud to be part of the Chicagoland Region

CUPPA at the Center.
Real people live, study, and work in Chicago; our city known for its history, resilience, and premier location in the center of the country. We are not isolated at the edges but fully immersed in the culture of the citizens surrounding us.
At CUPPA, we work hand in hand with the city of Chicago and surrounding region, which contains the most local governments of all U.S. metro areas. We are able to use the intellectual capital among our faculty, students, and alumni to the benefit of all that surrounds us and beyond.
