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.
