One of the best university in the country. The campus is quite big, with some very nice buildings (especially the latest ones over the lake). Check out the new Kellogg building. Amazing!.

Was here for a workshop, but having a little time outside of meetings to explore the campus during the spring time was great. Tulips, daffodils, green lawns, some fragrant bush flowers. Very beautiful campus on the lake.

Really enjoyed visiting the campus. It is a great walking campus with lots to see. Especially liked the walk near the lake. I also found the food on the campus to be very good. Recommend seeing the church on campus.

We've seen lots of theater there and other off classes for fun, their sailing school is second to none! Location and the town are unique and diverse. The area is on the water and architecture outstanding

World class reputation! Chicago is at your doorstep, and Evanston is a great town, as well! If you can get in, GO!

You can get a better education for less money elsewhere. The location is very congested and parking is horrible.

We are heading up with our son to visit Northwestern and wondering if there is easy public transportation from Evanston into Chicago or if we'll have to drive if we want to go into the city.

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.
