Excellent teacher! The class has been a difficult subject matter, but I am learning many interesting facts I did not know about.

The Northwestern Campus is located right beside Lake Michigan and is filled with lovely old buildings, exciting new buildings, art spaces and spectacular views. Take a stroll and enjoy it. It will make you want to become a student again and forever.

Evanston is the underdog in this relationship. Northwestern has so much money they keep erecting buildings by the lake. They are modern forts serving the rich kids from all over the world.

Steve D. gave a good answer. It's a nice walk through the Evanston neighborhood to the campus. Downtown Evanston is worth a visit as well.
