CPP Get Ready Series!

Welcome to the Northwestern crash course on college life! The College Prep Get Ready Series equips students with information to help navigate the vast amount of student resources and recreation on and off campus. Discussions, panels, lectures, and experiential group activities setup by Northwestern staff and students will be available before or after class to keep students active and engaged with the Northwestern community. Students will have access to a variety of group events such as exploring cultural activities in the surrounding Chicago area, learning tips and tricks of the first year of college from current undergraduates, and weekly scheduled special topic lectures from current staff and faculty. We like to call this “the ultimate undergraduate immersion experience.” Are you ready for it?
