Northwestern University - Description

Northwestern is a major private research university with 12 academic divisions located on two lakefront campuses in Evanston and Chicago. By any measure, Northwestern ranks among the premier universities in the nation, combining the resources of a major research university with the intimacy of a small college. The number of undergraduates here is relatively small -- only 7,900 -- yet, with more than 80 formal academic concentrations in six undergraduate schools, we offer an astonishing range of study. Northwestern's excellence is evident in many ways: test scores and class rank of entering students, library holdings, the success of our graduates. What sets us apart from many other large universities, however, is our commitment to undergraduate teaching: Our faculty teach more than 95 percent of the courses on campus, and the opportunities for undergraduates to do research projects or independent study are plentiful. No matter which school or course of study you choose, you will find that a foundation in the liberal arts is an integral part of your education at Northwestern.
