    I am not yet sure, but I assume you should go to sporting events and join clubs.

    Head to Chicago and explore EVERYTHING: art, culture, shopping, the works. Also, there's great stuff in Evanston.

    NU Nights is a great student-run organization that organizes fun on-campus events most weekends. The Greek life scene is also huge on campus, so if that's your thing, you can definitely hit up parties on weekends. Evanston is also great, as there are a lot of restaurants to go out to eat at, a movie theatre, and lots of boutiques to shop. And of course, the city of Chicago is a mere shuttle or train ride away. Chicago has a lot to offer college students, and should you choose Northwestern, it really benefits you to get exposure to the city.

    There is always a play, show, or event going on around campus. Weekends are always fun as after a week of stress people want to cut loose! Never a dull moment here.

    Northwestern is by the beach and a train ride from Downtown Chicago, so there is a lot of activities in that alone. There are also great local shops and restaurants to check out.
