The campus is beautiful and everything is so pretty and green with the feel of Fall approaching. Obviously, since I have a son attending, I think that it's a great school. Wish you didn't have to purchase the meal plan just because you live on...More

Our son just started at Northwestern, I have to say that it is the most beautiful campus that I've seen. I felt sorry that I had to leave! The town is gorgeous, with Victorian houses and tree-lined streets. My son's dorm is a block from...More

If you're in the vicinity, you really should walk this campus. It's beautiful. There is lots of new construction and many older buildings in a rather eclectic mix hugging the shores of Lake Michigan. The university even has a beach and sail boat rentals as...More

Evanston's a great college town and Northwestern has a beautiful campus to visit. There is a lovely park to walk near the lake next to campus, away from traffic. One of its hidden gems is the Shakespeare Garden, a cozy little secret garden with herbs...More

My wife and I are both graduates and our daughter was fortunate to be admitted. Things have changed quite a bit since I was there in the mid-1980's. There are a number of new, impressive buildings. Walking on the lakefront is a joy as you...More

My wife and I went to Ivy schools on east coast, and both agree that Northwestern has a ton to offer...and you don't have the baggage and elitism of some schools. Midwest is refreshing versus coasts. Setting is spectacular (granted might be tough in winter...More

Went here for a run along the shore line. Great view of Chicago downtown and sail boats. Lots of students and staff enjoying the evening. Parked at the Athletic field, where permit parking ends at 4pm. Assumed free after 4pm. No problem with parking there.

The new visitor's center and music building have stunning views of Lake Michigan, thanks to the extensive use of glass walls. And then there's the 100+ year old Gothic English building tower. Beautiful ivy covered walls juxtaposed with modern architecture on picturesque Lake Michigan.
