“Big Ten university with an emphasis on academics”
Reviewed January 25, 2012

Prestigious Northwestern University is situated on a lovely campus along the shore of Lake Michigan in Evanston - the first town north of Chicago on the lake. You can walk or bike around the campus, past it's interesting buildings, under huge trees, around it's large lagoons and past the big lake. Don't miss the Shakespeare Garden.

NU is a first class university. I was impressed with the breadth of their curriculum and what they had to offer to the student body.
