I really enjoy the flexibility in being able to explore my many interests - this is one of the benefits of the quarter system. I also think that Northwestern students are very similar in that they are all very driven, however, we differ in our personalities and passions which I appreciate.
The quarter system does move very fast and sometimes you have less downtime than you would at a semester school.
I liked the wealth of opportunities and the expertise of the professors.
Very high cost of tuition.
I love the sense of community and campus feel. We have access to the great city of Chicago but are far away enough to not feel overwhelmed by city life. The midwestern culture is so great as well.
You should be aware of the weather. Coming from California, I didn't understand the implications of being in a state with actual seasonal changes and it is something I wish I had prepared for more.
I like Northwestern’s inclusivity and teachers.
I don’t like how the dining halls work. You are only allowed to eat inside, which makes it hard when you are sick.
Northwestern University has a great lake view of course. Besides, all the professors I met so far are so nice that it seems that they are just there to help you to excel. I also really like the student community here. Everyone is friendly regardless of ethnicity or nationality.
The food is a little bit monotonous. The winter is cruel, and the quarter system is intense.
Northwestern University is known for its strong academic programs, particularly in the fields of business, engineering, and journalism. The social life is also vibrant, with many student organizations, clubs, and events to get involved in. The classes are challenging, but it is to be expected from a top-ranked university. Overall, attending Northwestern would be a great opportunity for students who are looking for a challenging and rewarding academic experience in a diverse and vibrant community.
Students should be aware of the quarter schedule, which can make some courses significantly harder due to having a shorter time frame for learning information; classes are very dense with information. The environment can also at times be very competitive which could deter some people away from their studies or make them lose motivation.
