My experience with northwestern was fun. I was very active in clubs & activities. I highly recommend joining activities because it looks good on college applications.
Northwestern was a great school, when I attended it helped prepare me for the future. I was proud to attend a school that housed more than one race of students and faculty. It allowed me to view the world through my own eyes and not that of the era.
