Northwestern University lies on the shore of Lake Michigan north of Chicago in Evanston. Excellent location and features a incredible music building. The programs there are top notch. And beyond the music program there is a wide variety of rigorous academic programs from which to choose.

Our choir performed at Millar Chapel last month, a beautiful venue but in dire need of a lighting upgrade. One of the most breathtaking examples of stained glass use in America but at night there is no provision for lighting the windows.

We used the food courts for 6 days while visiting a patient. The variety is excellent and the food is very good and reasonable priced. We recommend it. There is a TGI Fridays nearby that also is good.

Did my post-Bach premedicine program here about 5 years ago. The education was outstanding, facilities were great and the location can't be beat, the northshore with a great view of the lake and the city anywhere on campus. Lived on central across from the football stadium, which is a very lively area with shops, restaurants and the purple line train.... More

Let me clear. Northwestern is one of the FINEST UNIVERSITIES in the country but it also remarkably beautiful! In the great town of Evanston IL, Northwestern is a dream school for its location as well!

I am an Evanston resident and often walk along the lakefront path and make my way up to Sheridan Road to walk through the campus. There is much in the way of architectural detail with the mixture of old and new buildings on the campus-library, churches, library, Norris Center, fraternity houses.
