Information for Visitors & Prospective Students

Dear Northwestern Student:

I hope you will review this online brochure carefully and accept our invitation to apply for membership in one of Northwestern's 11 residential colleges.

A residential college is a place where you can grow emotionally and intellectually, get to know faculty, and benefit from unique learning and leadership opportunities. It provides a smaller community within the larger University, where you can create a special undergraduate experience. You will be able to interact with students who share interests similar to yours and with a faculty master and residential college fellows.

More than a third of the first-year students living on campus choose a residential college. I hope that you will apply for membership in one of our residential colleges and that you will enjoy participating in this lively living and learning opportunity at Northwestern.

Best wishes.

Daniel Linzer
