Navigating Northwestern Academics

Navigating Northwestern Academics is a series of casual, interactive forums designed to help undergraduates find their best footing in negotiating the sometimes-rocky path toward their academic goals. These events may be especially useful for first-year students, but all Northwestern undergrads are welcome.
