I am a little bias, I went to NU and now so does my son. It is a great University in an absolutely splendid location. The educational standards are world-class along with the extracurricular activities and all the varsity and club sports. GO CATS!

From O'Hare, there is a pace bus that goes directly from the airport to the rail station at Davis (Northwestern). FYI, from O'hare, Uber is about 35$.
