Laurell Hill Elementary Visits NU

September 30, 2015
Laurell Hill Elementary Visits NU. The Latina and Latino Studies Program hosted 70 third grade students and their teachers from the Laurel Hill Elementary School in Hanover Park for a visit to our campus. On September 30, 2015, the students walked around South Campus, the library, Norris Student Center, and the lakefront learning about the university and its academic fields.  They had lunch and asked great questions about university life. Many of them left stating that they wanted to come to Northwestern for college. We are pleased to have had the opportunity to show most of them for the first time what a university looks like and what we do here.  It is never too early to begin to get young Mexican and Latino/a students to consider higher education.
