    Great for these types of students

    NLU is great for a student who really isn't sure which path they want to take as far as majors. The advisors are very patient and willing to walk you through every step of the way. They call and check to make sure you are on track with what is needed. So for a person that needs that extra push they are there for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you have all your financial aid needs are met and all necessary documentation. So there will be no distraction or interruptions once you start classess.

    Bang for the buck

    I am getting a bang for the buck school is expensive and I am trying different means of funding my education, I have come this far and don't want to have to drop out because of my finances. I am currently unemployed but is trying to continue school

    Am enjoying being here

    I enjoy being in school, I have waited so long to return to school. Sorry I was laid off from my job, however, it is allowing me to attend school full time during the day where I can be attentive! The professors as well as the other staff are very friendly and helpful.

    Am learning a lot

    I have learned a alot since I have been attending NLU the professors are very nice and eager to help you with any questions you may have. My experience so far has been great the classroom setting is comfortable which helps make learning easier.

    Campus Safety

    Never had a problem at National-Louis. I have never felt I was in any danger.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student whom want a education.

    Bang for the buck

    The school is expensive but it is worth the money. The teachers are great, only 10 -12 student per class. Which is very good, I feel I get a lot of attention from the Teachers verse being in a classroom with 20-30 students.

    What to do for fun

    Many place to visit while downtown.

    Dorm Life

    No dorms

    Tips for prospective students

    The classroom capacity is small which is one of the reason I chose to attend National Louis. The teacher are very well teachers and it is easy to get alone with teachers and your classmates. It is a good environment. Very friendly staff

    Bang for the buck

    National Louis is a private university so it is a little expensive. I got a lot of my tuition covered by Financial Aid and NLU scholarship for having a good GPA and now I owe 7 grand for my first year.

    What to do for fun

    I think the best part is before or after class or in your breaks, you can go shopping on Michigan Ave. since the college is on Michigan Ave. it self.

    Food and Dining

    I did visit the location and there is possible anything you think of over there. It is downtown chicago afterall. The closest places I saw and that I can remember on the top of my mind were: starbucks, mcd, subway and Panda Express.

    Dorm Life

    I will be traveling from home, so I cannot give an opinion or advice about dorm life.

    Academic Rigor

    As I mentioned earlier, I will be getting two double majors with just one extra class in Psychology. My double major will be Bachelors in Education and Psychology within 2 years after Associates Degree.

    Tips for prospective students

    Before you apply to National Louis, do make sure in which campus your classes will be; I found out almost last minute my classes will be in downtown chicago campus instead of the skokie campus and that was very inconvenient for me.

    In three sentences

    National Louis seems like a great place to go to school with a beautiful location and architecture. I found the best degree possible and will be getting a double major within two years! My advising counselor is really helpful and kind.

    there are lots of things to do for fun, especially if your in the downtown campus, shopping!

    Food and Dining

    There are lots of places to eat and looks like a great place to explore new things

    Dorm Life

    I will not be living in a dorm, I will be living with my parents and commuting to the downtown campus

    Academic Rigor

    I will be completing a double major in early childhood education and in psychology with just an extra psychology class. National Louis University is great in their academic setting

    Tips for prospective students

    Some tips for prospective students is to visit the academic advisors to make sure you have everything you need, make sure you know what campus your classes are going to be and make sure the cost of the tuition and books and everything is in your mind.

    In three sentences

    National Louis looks to be a beautiful and great place to study. It is great that they allow a double major, and it a great named private university

    Campus Safety

    The school is very secured. To get to the school one must take an elevator which only goes to the student main desk center. After that you would have to take another elevator to go to the classes, whether you are leaving or entering the school everyone has to get off at the student main desk center.

    Greek Life

    There is no fraternities or sororities.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are small clubs that are arising such as a club called Fasht. This group is for people who want to exercise but dont have enough time and dont have the financial support to go to a gym. Another club that people can join is the Association of Latino Scholars, who learn about the hispanic culture and go out to fundraise money for events, scholarships and more.

    Bang for the buck

    Driving to school can be a hassle so the school offers CTA passes for trains and buses. A neat thing is that the train stop is in the same block as the school. For those who would rather drive, there is a parking building right next to the school which offers discounts for students.

    What to do for fun

    In the school, there is a room called the student center, where students gather and hang out watching television, playing pool or card games. Another place is outside, the school is in downtown Chicago, right near Millennium Park. The whole city is your backyard.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options of restaurants to go get food from.

    Dorm Life

    There is no dorms in this school.

    Academic Rigor

    The rigor in the classes are set high and at a reasonable difficulty. It depends mostly on the student on the type of quality they want to turn their work in.

    In three sentences

    National Louis University is a great school academic wise. The professors there take their time to take you step by step in the lectures. The school is also located near the train stop and there is a parking building for transportation.
