Our Community

Come together as one Northwestern community, wherever you are.

Check in with other Wildcats, share your experiences and stay connected to the Northwestern community.

COVID-19 has changed how we learn and work, how we connect with each other, and how we go about our daily lives. While we are scattered across the country and globe and cannot be together on campus, technology can bridge the physical distance between us. 

Use this page as a resource for joining virtual gatherings and events, finding new ways to engage and more.

Northwestern is contributing to the fight against COVID-19 and making an impact. In times of crisis, our community of faculty, students, staff and friends alike pull together to make a difference.
