Learn about Northwestern, meet with members of our Admissions team and find answers to your questions.
In addition to on-campus visits and online opportunities, Northwestern also hosts programming centered around geographic regions. See below for an overview of options, along with a list of our territories.
Northwestern Comes to You
Northwestern Comes to You (or, as we like to call it, "NU Comes to You") is a series of regional information sessions designed to help folks get to know us a little bit better. The NU Comes to You sessions feature a chance to interact with a Northwestern representative and ask questions about anything from the application process to being a student at Northwestern.
Available programs will vary seasonally and by region; for current programs in your area, please see the Regional Contacts section below. Please note that Fall 2023 programs will not be updated until after Labor Day (September 4).
Coast to Coast College Tour
Northwestern has partnered with Dartmouth College, Princeton University, the University of California, Berkeley and Vanderbilt University as part of the Coast to Coast College Tour. At each of these group travel events, representatives will provide a brief overview of each institution, general information on admission and financial aid policies and a chance to speak informally with admission representatives.
For more information on upcoming sessions, and to register, please visit the Coast to Coast College Tour website.
When applying to college, families can have questions that span a wide range of topics, from wanting to know more about Northwestern, to the application process, financial aid, and more. We know that the process can appear complex, especially for families going through for the first time, and our office is here to help.
We assign points of contact based on geographic regions based on a student's current school (or the last institution attended), which you can find below, along with information about events specifically for students attending school in your area.
Note: While we don’t treat demonstrated interest as a tally of touchpoints that carries weight in our review process, we do value our connections with you and are happy to assist.
