It was worth every bit of the early rising I had to do for getting to Chicago before 8 a.m. Met Geoff Livingston at the Chicago Midway airport. It was weird that South West has a flight to Chicago almost at the same time from BWI and Dulles IAD in the morning.
The Loyola Water Tower Campus is in downtown Chicago and it was easy to get there for $2 using the EL from midway and changing to the red line.
The campus is great. Did not love the fact that the break away session room is 13 floors down but the location is awesome. So far have been to these sessions.
