What Students Are Saying

4.26 Average Rating
This is a very academically rigorous school and the quarter system doesn't make it any less challenging, if anything it makes it more difficult. However, this doesn't take away from the school. Everyone here is so passionate and welcoming, no one wants to see their classmates do poorly and people are always willing to help one another out.
Naomi from Chicago, IL
Northwestern is very good at challenging its students with a variety of academic courses and sequences. The faculty are very attentive to students' needs, and it is easy to meet with professors to discuss any questions or comments related to coursework. The social atmosphere is vast; there are dozens of student groups and organizations, and although it may seem overwhelming, everyone finds their niche.
