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.
