  • I came from near poverty when I arrived at Northwestern as an undergraduate. After recovering from culture shock, I succeeded beyond expectations, graduating with a publication in a major journal and going to complete my doctorate. Since graduation I have had great experiences and a successful career. Many thanks to my perceptive advisor, inspiring professors, and the Pullman Foundation. Also I love the beautiful campus!

  • It was a great experience academically and socially, and as a walk on in the baseball program. A beautiful campus nestled on Lake Michigan only 12 miles north of Chicago. The academic programs for undergraduates are second to none, and I chose Northwestern over Cornell , Michigan, Purdue,& Wisconsin
