Anyone who even considers NU is an complete idiot. I transfered here from Oberlin because my major teachers came here, and it is the worst experience I have had in my enitire life, and the biggest mistake I have ever made. The administration doesn't give a shit about the students here. Complaints are not regarded and nothing is ever changed. Lighting along the lakeshore is awful at night, and several girls in the past year have been attacked and ALMOST rapped. The whole school is set up to make as much money as possible with no regard to the student. As a transfer student, I never recieved an adequate tour of the campus, nor insightful information, like were is health services ect. The professors only care about getting tenure and keeping it, they have absolutely no time for you outside of class for questions. This school also projects one type of mentality, and if you are upper-middle class to rich and white, then you will not function well here. To prove my point, read this:

As you may be aware, Northwestern’s Evanston campus has been the site of two very troubling incidents during the past two days. On February 11, racial and sexual slurs were written on the doors of several rooms in Ayers College of Commerce and Industry. On February 12, a swastika was drawn on a door to a floor in McCulloch Residence Hall.

These actions have hurt members of the Northwestern University community who are understandably upset. I would like to assure them, and all other concerned members of the community, that actions such as these are not acceptable by any standards and will not be tolerated at Northwestern. I condemn these acts as strongly as I can. University Police and Student Affairs are investigating these incidents; anyone who has information about these incidents should contact University Police or William Banis, Vice President for Student Affairs. In addition, staff from the offices of University Residential Life, African-American Student Affairs and the Multicultural Center will be meeting with students in regard to these incidents to provide all necessary support.

Do you want to go to a school that has stuff like this going on, and this just happened in the past week.

I'm so glad I moved off campus, housing sucks, and the food if prutride and over priced. It cost about $900 bucks a month to live on campus, that is why I live in the city, because it's cheaper. I can't wait to get out of this institution. It's as if they have confined to 4 years of torture just to get a piece of paper, and is SO not worth it. The Dir. of Student affairs in the school of music is amazing though, so are two ladies in Fin-aid, but beyond that, steer clear of everyone else. The music facilities here are the worst I've ever seen in my life. The practice rooms are not sound proof, they are drafty, and you feel the cold lake air comming through the cracks around the windows. There's only like 60 practice rooms in the whole school too which is ridiculous.

The students are the most self centered, arrogant, conservative, snooby, materialist bastards I have ever incountered on earth. Oh my God, you do not want to go to this school, it will be hell for you.
