Community and Campus Life

Whether graduate students live on or off campus, they are always encouraged to take advantage of Northwestern's rich cultural environment and intellectual resources. Distinguished speakers come to the campus daily and most lectures are available to all students without charge. Students, faculty and guest artists in theater, music and opera offer performances almost every evening during the year. The presence of students from nearly every country in the world adds to the cultural diversity on campus.

Northwestern's Evanston and Chicago campuses are on Lake Michigan, which offers a variety of scenic and recreational opportunities for our community members.
