Summer Publications

Purple Prep

student reading Purple Prep

You will receive Purple Prep in May 2017 via physical mail. Purple Prep will prove to be your go-to guide for all things you need to know during the summer months prior to your start at Northwestern; we cannot stress enough just how important it will be for you to read through this book upon receiving it. This handy book will include a master checklist for you to keep up with everything in a single place.

March to the Arch e-newsletters

students on the March to the Arch

The second most important item for you to read during the summer (aside from Purple Prep) is the monthly March to the Arch e-mail. We streamline all of the need-to-knows, updates, and reminders into a single email each month so you know exactly what to read and when to expect it. You'll receive this important communication item the first Tuesday of each month from May-September via your Northwestern email account; an archive will also be held on this page. Oh, we'll also include a few things that will get you excited for your time under the Arch.
