Northwestern University — Evanston Campus

It’s hard not to envy the students of Northwestern University’s Evanston campus where parks, playfields and academic buildings line Lake Michigan

Toss a frisbee or have a picnic on Deering Meadow’s two acres of green space in the center of campus. In the mood for arts and culture? Swing by the southwest corner of campus to visit the Arts Green — an intentional open space where the public can experience arts through creative events.

If you have time, consider venturing into Evanston, where you’ll find a great collection of places to eat, shop and play in one of Chicago’s most beautiful suburbs.
