Northwestern University is a private research university in Evanston, Illinois. Established in 1851 to serve the former Northwest territory, it is the oldest chartered university in Illinois and is consistently cited as one of the top universities in the world. Admissions at Northwestern are considered to be highly selective. Chartered by the Illinois General Assembly in 1851, Northwestern was initially affiliated with the Methodist Episcopal Church but later became non-sectarian. By 1900, the university was the third largest university in the United States. Northwestern became a founding member of the Big Ten Conference in 1896 and joined the Association of American Universities as an early member in 1917. More information...
