We’re described as the Hogwarts of seminaries. Lake Michigan is in our backyard. We’re smack dab in the middle of Northwestern University’s campus. We have lush gardens in the spring and summer. We’re vegan and vegetarian friendly, but also very close to sushi, pho, deep dish pizza, wings, tapas, and a whole host of other culinary delights! Need we say more? Want to see campus for yourself? Check out our self-guided virtual campus tour!

Want to check out the larger campus? Though we are not part of Northwestern University, we sit at the heart of their Evanston campus. You can see their virtual tour on this page (scroll down to "Virtual Tour). For spots that are of special interest to our students, check out NU's library, the lakefront, the Shakespeare Garden, and Norris Student Center for just a few starting points!
