Sweet Home Chicago

Student Affairs Department: Wildcat Welcome

Let's be honest, we're a bit, er, intense about our traditions here at Northwestern. Whether in the form of camping out to paint the Rock or screaming your throat hoarse during the Primal Scream of finals week, Wildcats gravitate to these unifying, shared experiences. But when we think beyond the silliness of some our common rituals, we find something greater and more enduring: the common values they create.

One of those values, and key elements of the Northwestern experience, is the relationship Wildcats have with the city of Chicago.
