The Booth Partners club is an official Booth club comprised of spouses and significant others (all types are welcome) of Booth students. In addition to providing a variety of special events throughout the school year, we also have a diverse range of special interest groups that organize monthly social activities. Once you become a member, you are welcome to participate in all special events and special interest group activities.
Membership fees are modest for the value you receive - a lifetime membership is only $100 and a one-year membership is only $65. Think of your dues as an evening out in Chicago. Joining the club is an incredibly budget-friendly way to make some instant friends and have some fun in the city! Here's a glance at some of the membership benefits that await you.
