Welcome to Weinberg College! As a first-year student, you have a lot of choices to make and tasks to accomplish, some of which need to be completed this summer -- taking relevant placement exams, for example. Other tasks, such as deciding on a major, are less immediately urgent and will involve on-going conversations with your freshman adviser (who is usually the instructor of your freshman seminar) and your other professors.
This website, and the sites of every Weinberg department and program, are geared to getting you the information you need to make decisions and chart your way forward.
- See times, locations, and formats for language placement tests.
- The Learning Languages at Northwestern brochure from NU's Council on Language Instruction provides in-depth information.
- The newly created Global Languages Initiative is a campus-wide effort to promote the importance of multilingual and intercultural skills across all disciplines.
