Visit and Engage

Start your journey

We're all about connections

A college visit used to be linear: you travel to campus, take a tour, go home and perhaps apply, perhaps not. Today, your college search can span a network of connections. (And as you'll learn, Northwestern is all about connections.) Maybe you can visit—if so, we will be thrilled to welcome you here. But we recognize a physical trip isn't possible for many. So in addition to on-campus visit opportunities, we offer a variety of online events and activities so you can get to know us from afar.

Much like the Northwestern academic experience, our in-person opportunities aim to provide you with a flexibility that allows you to choose your own Northwestern direction. We hope you’ll be able to identify programming that fits into your schedule and caters to your individual interests.
