“Beautiful campus”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Great university location. Better to walk around in the spring and summer! Located near many restaurants, shopping and the Orrington Hotel.

This is where I want to go for college! I play volleyball for their junior team. The education programs there are very worthwhile.

“Beautiful Campus on Lake Michigan”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 11, 2012

One of the top universities in the Midwest and nationally. Only private university in Big Ten. Lovely campus, mix of old and new architecture. Fun football weekends, NU games usually start at 11am for Big Ten TV. Lots to do and see, plus Evanston is a jewel on the Northside of Chicago. Easy transportation via "L" train or Metra. Certainly worth a visit. Get good grades in high school and you could visit for four years!

“Walk along the lake”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

What a great place to walk along the lake in the summer. The blues of the lake are an eyeful! Grabbing a custard ice cream cone at Andy's is a great way to end a beautiful walk.
