“Summer in the City”

This is part one of a series of blogs that center around places to visit and things to do in Chicago this summer.

The Tribune Tower, constructed in 1923-1925, is an iconic symbol of Chicago. It is less than 25 miles  from the  Moraine Valley Community College campus. The Tower is an architectural jewel filled with treasures from all over the world. The treasures include rocks from the Colosseum in Rome, the Giza pyramid, the Arc de Triumphe, Aztec Ruins and the Berlin Wall. These are just a few examples of historic rocks that are incorporated in the walls of this building.

Check out more information on the Tribune Tower and other great Chicago architecture from the MVCC catalog.
