Rather than visit Chicago, this April Late Show host David Letterman brought the city of Chicago to him—including 140 U of C students (20 English department students especially requested) who received an all- expenses-paid trip to the Big Apple for being part of the studio audience. Below, five reasons the trip was well worth it, according to University Publications assistant Jennifer Agustin, AB’98:

5. The Chicago El just doesn’t have that funny smell that the New York subway system has.

4. Doesn’t everyone need a little more smog in their lives?

3. The Jay Leno Tonight Show in Chicago just didn’t do it for me.

2. Free hot dogs at the hotel.

1. My big break into the biz…it’s gonna happen, I tell ya. I’M GONNA GET NOTICED!
