I also was at a summer program hosted at NWU called CTD and i got to stay there for two weeks. The campus was amazing. It was perhaps located in the best place possible. It had a campus that was located in a small town and it is right outside the city of chicago and it is by the water of Lake Michigan. In fact they have an on campus beach. The campus itself was just beautiful because they had walkways and cycling paths that were right next to the water and everything was incredibly nice. Unfortunately during the summer some of their buildings and centers were closed so i didnt get to see everything but from what i saw their classrooms and labs were very nice. I loved the campus and it was my first choice until my mom told me its too far haha.
