Future-focused

I feel I am well prepared for the future. The solid educational foundation I’m getting at Northwestern will help me succeed in any career I choose.

Sammy's story

“I really love the idea of interdisciplinary study that the Honors Program offers. This really interests me because my majors are so different, and because I love to learn as much as I can. In fact, I wanted to major in four or five disciplines, but that’s not feasible, so instead I enrolled in the Honors Program because it promises experience in fields outside of your own, which is really cool.”
