webbpage: Norhtwestern textbooks - exchange on-campus

My friend from Grand Valley uses a site, www.p2pspot.com, to exchange textbooks on-campus for free.  Have any of you heard of it, or used it?  I'd rather use something like this verses the bookstore AND i hate shipping stuff...please let me know asap.

sparkycircuit: Quick Question

Just a quick question, but does anyone know if Northwestern offers any sort of roller/inline hockey? If not, anyone know about any oppurtunities in the Evanston area?

Thanks for any help!

sparkycircuit: (no subject)

I've applied Early Decision as a theatre major, and I don't want to be one of those people who shares their laundry list of qualifications, I do have some questions that I'm curious to get some opinoins on.

1. I'm a theatre major, yes, but I don't have a whole lot of credits. I've acted in two shows, assistant stage managed one and stage managed another and I'm stage managing another this year. I know that a lot of people have a lot more credits then that. The town I live in is pretty slim pickings on theatre oppurtunities, so it's not for lack of trying. Also, my high school has no drama program at all. Do you think this will hurt me? If so, how much?

2. That being said, is there anything specific that could really push me over the edge in terms of my application? I know that showing interest is very important, and I was wondering if anyone had any advice on how to seem interested while not seeming to be nagging the admissions people.

3. I've been looking into housing because I believe that getting way too invested in a school when admission isn't guarenteed is the way to go. I'm really interested in either CRC or Jones, but I also was curious about 'regular' dorms, as opposed to residential colleges. Any advice either way?

Basically, I just want some advice, and any you have would be really, really appreciated.

_teaspoon_: A few questions from a prospective student

I'm almost certain I want to early decision to NU... I just have a few concerns I need to clear up before I sign the binding contract. 

1. Is it difficult to double major in different schools? Could a WCAS student double major in Economics and Journalism?

2. How's the party scene? I know about the Greek life and the dorm parties, but is there clubbing in Chicago? Formals? Any kind of bizarre fun?

3. Are study abroad programs popular? Could you do 2 or 3?

4. A lot of upperclassmen move off-campus... does this upset the sense of community in the school? One of the things I really like about smaller liberal arts colleges is the close-knit student body and I'm not sure that NU has a similar atmosphere.

Thanks for any help. =]

purplejuli: Jerks, I swear

I live in central Pennsylvania.  I don't expect to get to watch the Cats play every week.  I can live with that.  

As a result, I'm stuck listening to the game online from WGN's website.  You'd think that since NU is a Chicago school the broadcast would favor the Cats.  I'm not asking them to make stuff up or to forget a legacy of bad football, but you'd think they wouldn't go out of their way to suck up to the other team.

I thought maybe it was just my "NU Football Sucks" hackles going up but my football maniac sweetie can hear the game from the other side of the room and he agrees with me that the color guys are being jerks.

My friend tells me me that the one of the broadcasters in an NU alum!  The other is a former Bear.  You'd think they'd give the Wildcats a little extra love. Nope.

Ass hats.

I'm pissed.

purplejuli: Reunion Weekend

This community has been dead for awhile.  That's sad.

So, anyway, I am headed to Evanston for my, gulp, ten-year reunion.  Kinda put off planning it for awhile and now I'm trying to figure out where I should stay.

Any suggestions?
