About 25 bright young minds gather at DePaul University twice a week for an in-depth class every Chicagoan can relate to… For those scoring at home, it’s course number ISP 102-709: Chicago Cubs, taught by professor Blair Banwart and assisted by Ed Pniak.

That’s right, a class about baseball. The syllabus includes a look at the history of the club since the 1870s and its effect on the surrounding community. It is one of many freshman-level classes offered at DePaul designed to ease the transition from high school to college, especially for students unfamiliar with the city.
