“Coming Soon to a Classroom Near You”

Now in its second year, Coming Soon to a Classroom Near You is a great way for students to learn more about upcoming courses before they register for winter quarter. Faculty members and advisers are coming into residential settings to connect informally with students. These events are great opportunities for students to meet new faculty members, learn about majors and special programs, and make informed decisions for next quarter. Join one or more events on Facebook or e-mail ResAcademicInitiatives@northwestern.edu so we know you’re coming. We’re not worried about running out of good conversation, but we don’t want to run out of great food.
