Visit LSTC

Come and be our guest. We want to give you the opportunity to get a sense of LSTC through visiting with faculty and students, telling your story and sharing your questions, and getting a sense of this academic environment and community life. We are honored to walk with you on the "holy ground" of discerning your next steps in life.

Seminary Sampler Events

Seminary Sampler events are offered in the fall and spring for those who want to immerse themselves in what it means to be a seminarian in Hyde Park. These are also great opportunities if you want to meet others who are considering seminary.

2016 Seminary Sampler Night: Monday April 11

2016 Fall Sampler: October 23-25

Individual Visit

A personalized, individual visit can also be scheduled anytime. For a full LSTC experience we recommend visiting during the academic year when classes are in session (Monday-Thursday), but we can still arrange a meaningful visit for you at other times during the year.

During your visit you can sit in on classes, meet with faculty and current students, attend chapel, tour the LSTC campus and our housing, and explore the Hyde Park neighborhood and downtown Chicago. You will also have the opportunity to meet with Admissions staff and discuss degree programs and financial aid.

Email to schedule a visit or call 773-256-0727.
