Wallenda most famously performed in western New York in 2012, when he walked over Niagara Falls on a wire in a live televised event.

D’Youville is a small private university with about 3,000 full- and part-time students. Officials say the new health clinic will serve the city's west side while letting students gain clinical experience.

Nik Wallenda is ready for Sunday's tight rope walk over the Chicago River, regardless of the weather. NBC 5's Rob Elgas reports.
