Evanston is the underdog in this relationship. Northwestern has so much money they keep erecting buildings by the lake. They are modern forts serving the rich kids from all over the world.

Northwestern is doing expansion, renovations, utility upgrades, and redoing a main road with added bike paths so expect to see an epic battle of the diggers and fillers. That said, you still should go see this beautiful campus on Lake Michigan. It has ultra-modern buildings...More

We are starting the college tours and Northwestern's is very good. Walkable campus and a beautiful location on Lake Michigan. I recommend one of the smaller school tours in addition to the general one.
