Academic Department Showcase
2015–16 date to be announced
Come to Northwestern's Academic Department Showcase, which offers you an in-depth look at an academic area that most interests you. You'll meet professors and current students to find out what they love about their department.
Your morning will include a campus tour, the chance to attend chapel, and informational sessions on financial aid, residence life and campus ministries. Then, in the afternoon, learn more about the major you're most interested in. After lunch with faculty and students from your select academic department, you might attend a class, delve into coursework details, or hear from the program's graduates.
The Academic Department Showcase will begin with registration from 8 to 8:30 a.m. and conclude by 3 p.m. If you want to stay later, you'll also have the option of attending an athletic practice or music or theatre rehearsal.
(Registration for the Academic Department Showcase will open in September.)
