We are starting a new year of activities here at the Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association.
You are all invited to the Fall Welcome event in which we will meet our newly arrived Fulbrighters as well as continuing students. This first event of the year will take place on Saturday September 17, 2011 at 3:00 p.m. with an ARCHITECTURE RIVER CRUISE. For more info, check http://www.cruisechicago.com/tours.php
This is really exciting opportunity to get to know each other, meet the members of the Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association and to see some of the great architecture that Chicago has to offer. This river cruise allows us to appreciate, from the Chicago River, several of the iconic buildings of the city like the Tribune Tower, the historical Montgomery Ward Complex, the Civic Opera building, the Chicago Mercantile Exchange, the Willis Tower, among others.
We will meet at the southeast corner of E Wacker Dr & N Michigan Ave, Chicago, IL 60601 at 3 p.m.
You only need to R.S.V.P to email@example.com until this Friday September 2 at 4 p.m. Please, write your name and country where you had your Fulbright. The cost of the river cruise is $35 (bring cash or check.) But it is FREE of charge for Fulbright students.
There is one catch. If you reserve and do not come, you will be charged the cost of the 90-minute tour which is $35. The Chicago Chapter of the Fulbright Association needs to pay for the tour in advance and there are no refunds if people do not show up.
