I actually have disliked my experience at NU so much, I'm applying to transfer. While the campus is beautiful and having Chicago close by it great, my overall experience has been a huge disappointment. The students here are not friendly at all. If you aren't in the Greek system, theater department, or an athlete, it's very hard to find a group of welcoming people. I joined a bunch of activities and consider my self very normal (I was my high school class president!) and I have had a hard time finding other people. Regarding academics, NU has some great departments, but it's almost better to come here having a specified area of interest, like engineering or journalism. WCAS isn't that great.
questionIf you major in political science. You are still able to participate in Theater department correct?
