Unplug and Connect
 

What is UChicago Unplugged?

Do you ever feel like your phone is attached to your hand? Take your iPad to the beach on vacation? Ever find it hard to sit still for a bit without checking Insta? 
UChicago Unplugged is inspired by the Biblical Sabbath where people take a break from the bustle of the week and spend time with family and friends.
Take the pledge to put down your device for as many hours as you'd like, and see how 'unplugging' can improve different areas of your life, from work to sleep to relationships. 
We'll have an exciting weekend of activities and events as well!
 

How long can YOU unplug?

Take the Unplug Pledge! Sign up for anywhere between 1 - 20 hours of disconnection from your device (sleep hours don't count!). See why your friends have pledged to disconnect on the Unplug Pledge Board below.
Share the pledge with friends on campus so they can unplug as well!
