Hey gang. Correction on the piece. I misspoke. It was NOT the University of Chicago that moved into the Pier, it was the University of Illinois At Chicago. It was written correctly, I just said it wrong. Sorry all. Chris DeRose Twitter-@ChrisDeRoseWCIU

Absolutely luv Chris' segments. Slip up though yesterday! It wasn't the University of Chicago BUT the University of Illinois that set up a temp branch at Navy Pier. I was almost a student there...but U of I opened up the new Chicago Circle campus just as I entered the University! Yay for that!! The Pier was drafty I'm told.
