    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.

    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
