We were visiting the Department of Art Theory and Practice at Northwestern University. What an accomplished and stimulating faculty and what terrific, exciting MFA students! Terrific program within a great university.

“Tradition and excellent education”
Reviewed February 23, 2012

It's called the Harvard of the Midwest because of it's history, feel of the Ivy League and tradition, I suppose, but NU deserves it's own name. My daughter selected NU for it's biomedical engineering facility even though the Chicago weather was a negative. Campus has a very confortable feel to it, very safe. Setting could not be more beautiful on Lake Michigan. Absolutely something for everyone as far as inter-mural sports, performance opportunities, campus life in general. Normally carries a liberal bias, but there is an open attitude of live and let live.
Expensive but has an excellent networking system for helping most students find a job in their field even in these hard times.
