Why I Chose NU
I chose NU because, right from the beginning, I felt like I was walking into a family. The staff, professors, and students all made me a priority and cared for me even before I was a student at NU.
My Favorite Place on Campus
My favorite place on campus is The Nest! The Nest is a brand new lounge on campus with five huge televisions and lots of great seating to study or just hang out with friends. I am down there almost every night, either doing homework with friends, playing Madden, watching sports, or joining the huge crowd that watches The Bachelor (that gets very intense!).
My Most Meaningful Experience at NU
My most meaningful experience at NU has to be co-creating a club as a freshman. Being only a freshman, my friend, Tom, and I did not think it would even be possible to start our own club. The process seemed daunting, but the university student government and campus activities made everything simple to get started and supported us throughout the process. Co-creating our new club, fantasy sports club, taught me leadership skills, and gave me a sense of direction in my first year.
