Northwestern is a picturesque campus on the edge of Lake Michigan. A truly gorgeous university, with outstanding academic programs. Their School of Engineering has excellent networks with industry, providing lots of 'real world' experience for students.

We are heading up with our son to visit Northwestern and wondering if there is easy public transportation from Evanston into Chicago or if we'll have to drive if we want to go into the city.
