The faculty are the best part of this college, followed closely by aesthetics.

However, I give this caution. The administration doesn't (appear) to care about the students, and based of my experience they essentially ignored student feedback. This caused me significant frustration. The sports program lacks excitement (True story, on two occasions I was told to 'quiet down' by people in the student section so the opposing football team could get their play off. Apparently that is sportsmanship). Required chapels get really old, really quickly. In fact, so many students began "scanning and scramming" that the school started posting guards at all the possible escape routes. The food is healthy, high quality, required, and overpriced. The dorms are similar, comfortable, quality, required and overpriced. Except for Arden Hall (which I heard they finally demolished). The campus is unsafe. Because the general vibe is that of "well behaved students" security is lacking, and my hall alone had 7 reported robberies my senior year. The students vary from snobby to friendly and down to earth. However, I would say almost across the board, students involved with rez life tend to stay on the snobby/condesending side of things. And be careful, I know of multiple friends who "confessed" things in small group Bible studies who reported to 'the man'. And I am speaking from experience, I was involved with rez life :)

Fun things to do though. Ask about the controversy. There is a flash drive floating around with all of Northwestern's dirt on it (and oh, how dirty it is). It is a recording of a meeting between the faculty and administration a few years back. In fact, if this flash drive was ever found, it would be destroyed and the student expelled. Exciting right? Once you are "of age" make jello shots and eat them with huge groups of people in the cafeteria. If you get caught, out you go. On weekends, get up to the tower (and not with the key). Yes, it is very possible, and yes you will get very in trouble. While you are at it have a movie night in the theater room! But no have no fear, you probably won't get caught, as I said before, security is… lacking…
