Parents & Families

Northwestern in Chicago

All incoming students and their families from the Chicagoland area are invited to attend!

Guests will have an opportunity to meet current students, staff, faculty, and alumni. We’ll engage in casual conversations around the first-generation and/or lower-income (FGLI) experience at Northwestern and provide information on topics ranging from what to expect as a FGLI student to answering questions about what resources exist across campus. 

Class of 2024 Date - TBA
