Can't-Miss College Experiences

Weinberg magazine asked a few graduating seniors about their “can’t miss” college experiences. Here’s their advice for incoming freshmen.

“Study abroad. You never know when you might have the chance again.”

—Robert Gomez ’14, Psychology

“The Dearborn Observatory is a hidden gem at Northwestern. Don’t miss the chance to go stargazing right on campus. It’s awesome.”

—Emily Blumberg ’14, Political Science

“Take Intro to Painting in the spring (if you can) ! You get to paint outside, and it’s so beautiful and relaxing .”

—Julia Harrigan ’14, Mathematics

“Apply to become a Weinberg peer adviser. It was one of the most rewarding and fun experiences I had at Northwestern.”

—Sam McQuillan ’14, Political Science

“Show up. Support your friends. Say ‘yes.’ Keep meeting new people and exploring, on and off campus. And don’t be afraid to debate your professors.”

—Mark Silberg ’14, Philosophy
