There are a lot of successful universities in the USA; one of the most prominent representatives of such universities is Northwestern University. This school is considered to be a multi-disciplinary, but Northwestern University gained fame due to its activity in the research field, as well as high quality teaching. In particular, the schools of management, business and journalism deserve special attention. But such disciplines as medicine, chemistry and economics, achievements in the field of which are visible at the international level, are not far behind.
The starting point in the history of Northwestern University is 1851, when the university was founded by the efforts of nine representatives of businessmen and lawyers. One of the most prominent founders is John Evans, after whom the city of Evanston was named, some time after the university began to function. The founders planned to create a high-level educational institution where residents of several states could receive a decent education, whose territoriality corresponds to modern ones:
Creating a campus also has its own, no less fascinating story. For its location, we chose a territory spread over 379 acres of scenic land near Lake Michigan. The acquisition of the land plot occurred in 1853, and already 2 years after this event, a building was built here, now known as the Old College. In 1855, a few months after the completion of construction and repair work, classes began. At that time, only a dozen people (together with teachers) were in the ranks of the then still unknown educational institution.
The systematic development of the North-West University was marked by the opening of schools of legal and commercial orientation. They were founded in 1891 and 1908, respectively. In 1909 an engineering college was opened, which became the starting point for the rapid development of the university. Even then, the glory of the leadership of the institution to combine fundamental education with the necessary research activities, which at that time was most valued, went all over the country. Finding more and more popularity, the institution became necessary to build additional buildings and organize the educational process in new schools. Campuses were also built in Chicago and Doha.

Currently there are three campuses in the possession of the university. Two large located on the shores of Lake Michigan. The largest is located on 240 acres of land in the town of Evanston, the other is located on 25 acres of land in the famous city of Chicago, and the third is in the capital of Qatar - in the city of Doha.
At Evanston’s campus, students are offered an extensive infrastructure. In addition to the Dearborn Observatory located here, the laboratory of nanomaterials and molecular biology, the territory has an art museum, concert halls and much more. It also does not hurt to mention the numerous student cafes and restaurants, located within walking distance from educational buildings. Another remarkable fact is that in these cafes students are offered benefits.
Medical and law schools are located on campus in the city of Chicago. Along with a developed educational system, activities related to research discoveries, here you can also take special courses open to those who do not have the opportunity to study during the daytime. Evening courses are quite popular among working people, including the elderly.
The campus in Doha is small, and bachelor’s degrees in journalism and communication are taught on its territory. In addition to the standard elements of the campus infrastructure (reading rooms, pharmacies, shops, cafes, and so on), there are also sports facilities. The sections are visited by students of Northwestern University, and sporting achievements for the university are important, but because the sport is developed quite well.
