Wendella Boat Tour (Friday, 8:00pm)
There's no better way to explore the city than by cruising along the Chicago River on a Wendella Boat tour. Departing from the Wendella Dock at Trump Tower, an expert architecture tour guide will lead us through all three branches of the river. This 75 minute tour highlights Chicago’s rich architectural heritage, with dramatic views of residential and office buildings along the river. The tour starts promptly at 8:00pm CDT. We will depart Roosevelt Univeristy no later than 7:15pm and walk the few blocks to the Wendella Dock. Tickets are available for all scholars.
Chicago Cubs Game (Saturday, 6:15pm)
See the Chicago Cubs take on the Washington Nationals at historic Wrigley Field. The Cubs will honor the Pat Tillman Foundation in the 4th inning, so come prepared to take the field in your Tillman t-shirts. The first pitch is at 6:15pm CDT. We will depart Roosevelt University for Wrigley Field no later than 5:30pm via CTA (Jackson-Red Line stop). Tickets are limited.
Korengal Screening (Saturday, 7:00pm)
Attend a screening of the new, critically-acclaimed documentary KORENGAL from Sebastian Junger, author of WAR and the director of RESTREPO. The film picks up where RESTREPO left off; the same men, the same valley, the same commanders, but a very different look at the experience of war. It explains how war works, what it feels like and what it does to the young men who fight it. The screening will start at 7:00pm CDT and include an open-mic discussion afterwards. We will depart Roosevelt University for the AMC River East Theater no later than 6:00pm via CTA (Jackson-Red Line stop). Tickets are limited.

Pat Tillman Foundation
In 2002, Pat Tillman proudly put his NFL career with the Arizona Cardinals on hold to serve his country. This decision was just one of many he made over the course of his lifetime to help others and serve a cause greater than his own self-interest. Following Pat’s death in 2004, while serving with the U.S. Army’s 75th Ranger Regiment in Afghanistan, his family and friends established the Pat Tillman Foundation. The mission of the Pat Tillman Foundation is to invest in veterans and their families through academic and community.
