What are some cool fun facts about Northwestern University that most people don't know?

Hey folks, just starting to delve into college research and Northwestern seems pretty compelling. I'm the type of person who likes to get to know a college beyond what’s on the website or in the brochures. Anyone got some lesser-known fun facts about Northwestern that could give me an edge or even just make for great convo if I get an interview?

Hey there! Delving into the unique aspects of a university is such a fascinating part of the college search. I learned that Northwestern is one of the only universities with a beach right on campus! The students call it 'Northwestern Beach,' and it’s a popular spot when the weather's warm. It's perfect for a break between classes or for student events. Another interesting fact is that Northwestern’s 'The Rock' has become a campus icon for freedom of speech. Groups take turns painting The Rock with messages ranging from birthday wishes to political statements. What I found particularly exciting was learning about the university’s library system, which possesses one of the original copies of the U.S. Constitution. Such historical artifacts offer students a direct and tangible connection to the past. These unique features really add to the character and appeal of Northwestern and could certainly make for interesting conversation material should you land an interview! Hope this helps and best of luck with your research!
