Wildcat Welcome Open House

The annual SES Open House celebrates our students and families on the first day of Wildcat Welcome (student orientation). During the event, you can learn more about SES and receive a Welcome Kit of essentials to get you started off in your dorm room (sheets, towels, washcloths, water bottles, and more).

Northwestern in Chicago: Family Event

Northwestern in Chicago is an annual event that brings together students and their families from the Chicagoland area. During the event, you can expect to learn more about what your first-generation, lower-income (FGLI), and/or undocumented/DACA student may experience as they transition to Northwestern, and what resources are available to support them throughout their time on campus. Engage with a panel of faculty, former parents, and staff from Health Insurance, and the Dean of Students Office. Spanish translation is also provided during this event.
