  • Lovely Evanston campus, right on Lake Michigan with a new Sailing Center. This school is on a quarter system, which is brutal on the students, staff and faculty. They have over 500 job openings which ...  more »

  • I am mid-way through the first year of my Masters in Information Technology at the McCormick College of Engineering. The courses here are as rewarding as they are challenging. The administration are polite and very helpful, and the campus is gorgeous. In addition, the Alumni network is huge, geographically dispersed and extremely engaged. Overall Northwestern has provided me with an amaziny experience. As a Chicago native Northwestern has always been my dream school, now I know why.
  • This summer sunshine, golden beach and surfing people gave me an illusion that Northwestern University has a campus towards the vast ocean. But in fact, it just next to the Michigan Lake. When I came here in the early morning, this beautiful campus was in tranquility and peace. Some people playing beach volleyball and sand statues, some surfing and sailing. Yes, it's just one plain day, but also one perfect day, perfect campus!
  • Beautiful campus. Lakefill area is lovely for a walk/run/bike ride.
  • Northwestern is the Home of the Wildcats, and is a beautiful campus by the lakeside of Lake Michigan, just north of Chicago. I had a fantastic time studying here and the campus is incredible when autumn creeps in and paints everything in such resplendent colours (see pictures attached). Kellogg is also located here interestingly enough, away from the Chicago campuses of Feinberg etc., but all in all a great university.
  • Block Museum of Art is a small museum, but is a worthwhile destination.
