A Note from Gerry Cadava, One Book One Northwestern Faculty Chair

Have you listened yet to Episode 5 of One Book, One Northwestern: The Podcast? It features the stories of Northwestern students affected by Hurricane Maria, which devastated Puerto Rico.

What’s our Podcast all about, you ask? Well, Northwestern is a big campus that spreads out in many different directions. From Evanston to Chicago. From north campus to south campus. From the Northwestern Pritzker School of Law to the Northwestern Kellogg School of Business to Northwestern’s campus in Qatar, and many places in between. Moreover, we have alumni around the world, and current students who come from around the world.
