Visit Northwestern

The best way to figure out how a college fits you is to visit. Our students say one of the best things about Northwestern—the feeling of community—is hard to explain to someone who hasn’t experienced it. But you can get a taste by visiting campus. Meet our students and professors and talk to an admissions and financial aid counselor. Sit in on classes and spend the night in a residence hall.

Northwestern also provides opportunities to visit campus that are designed for students interested in a specific major or sport--for example, music, nursing, theatre, football and women's soccer. Dates, schedules and online registration forms for 2014-15 visits will be posted this fall. 

In addition to our top-10 U.S. News & World Report ranking, we’ve received national recognition for excellent academics, student volunteerism, affordability, conservation and other achievements. Learn more
