Experience LSTC for yourself! Whether you arrange an individual visit or attend one of our Seminary Sampler events, visiting campus and experiencing the culture and community of LSTC is one of the best ways to discern if this is the right place for you. Visits can be arranged for prospective students in all degree programs. Contact us to set up your visit today.
Housing and Transportation
Guest housing is available for all prospective student events and visits. Travel stipends are also usually available. LSTC will coordinate transportation to/from all major airports, bus stations, train stations, and public transportation hubs. If flying, we recommend you use Midway Airport as it is close to LSTC, but we also coordinate transportation to/from O’Hare.
A personalized, individual visit can be scheduled anytime. For a full LSTC experience we recommend visiting during the academic year when classes are in session (Monday-Thursday), but we will 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 vintage brownstone 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.
Seminary Sampler is a three-day event designed for those who want to immerse themselves in what it means to be a seminarian in Hyde Park. In addition to experiencing all the activities of an individual visit, Seminary Sampler participants meet other individuals discerning a call to ministry, enjoy a meal in Chicago’s vibrant Greektown neighborhood, engage in conversation with LSTC’s president, meet the faculty, and spend time with current students.
Housing and meals during the event are provided; travel stipends are available. Spouses, partners and parents are invited to attend.
