Wonton whirl

A group of students explored Chinatown—one of Chicago’s culturally rich neighborhoods—during a Chicago Ambassador trip.

With more than 65,000 Chinese residents, Chicago’s Chinatown is one of the largest neighborhoods of its kind in the United States.

The Lake Forest group toured the area’s vibrant and energetic culture reflected in many specialty shops, signature landmarks, and authentic cultural cuisine. The students even learned how to make traditional Chinese wontons at Hing Kee Restaurant. They dined on their creations as part of a feast of fried rice, spring rolls, and other authentic fare.

The group left campus in the morning and returned in the early evening. A student ambassador led the trip with tickets and transportation paid for by the Center for Chicago Programs. Students brought their own money for food and shopping.
