The best part of an adventure is who you spend it with.

Our students make ICO the collaborative, supportive environment that we’re proud of. When they aren’t studying as a team, our future ODs are exploring Chicago and serving the community. The bonds built between our students last a lifetime. You don’t just gain an OD at ICO; you gain friends, colleagues, a professional network.

A healthy life balance for our students is of utmost importance. So, we provide more than 20 clubs and organizations, leadership development opportunities, community service projects and mission trips, and special events like ICOlympics. There are also many student-run activities on campus. From intramural sports to foodie gatherings, you’ll find that special something to help balance your lifestyle.

…but don’t take our word for it! Get real ICO student perspective from our Blog and A Day in the Life video series.
