A storied Methodist redoubt of higher ed, NW's known -- nay feared -- for its impressive alumni, including water-parter Charlton Heston, charming wordsmith Rahm Emanuel, baroque pop-ists the Arcade Fire, and doughy luminaries like the CEO of Pizza Hut (true!). NW's intimidating athletic teams call themselves the Wildcats, which is sadly not a reference to a Goldie Hawn movie.

  • NAME For someone that prioritizes and promotes diversity, you do a great job of categorizing and generalizing the NU student body, Anonymous. Surely we are not all rich white kids, as I am black, grew up in the Bronx and LOVE my school. You are a walking hypocrite and a poor representation of your university. Go 'Cats!

  • NAME Oh, please Northwestern is a bunch of rich white kids who get through life on nepotism. U of C grads are a diverse group of people who get through life on hard work, brains, and compassion. Saturday, Oct 10 at 4:03 PM
