Purple Preview Conversation Request

Have you attended an information session or virtual student panel but still have questions about student life at Northwestern? Sign up for a Purple Preview Conversation for a one-on-one video chat or phone call with a current NU student. You can ask things like “Why did you choose Northwestern?” Or “what was the hardest part of leaving home and adapting to student life on campus?” Whatever comes to mind, our Wildcats will be happy to share their honest perspectives with you to help you decide your level of Purple Pride!

You’ll be contacted from admsac@northwestern.edu once you have been paired with a current student. Please allow up to two weeks before receiving your confirmation for a Purple Preview Conversation. 

While previous attendance at an admission information session or student panel is not required, it is encouraged prior to registering for a Purple Preview Conversation. Attending a session and familiarizing yourself with Northwestern can inspire thoughtful questions for your conversation, overall making the conversation a more valuable experience for you and your host. If you have not yet attended an information session on campus or online and are interested in doing so, you can register for one here

These conversations are a chance to learn about the student experience at Northwestern. Hosts are unable to answer specific questions about the admissions process.

Please note that pairing for Purple Preview Conversations will pause on March 10, 2023 and will resume the week of March 27, 2023, following spring break. You are welcome to submit this form and request a conversation during the break. We will be in touch regarding all conversation requests as soon as possible after March 27. Thank you for your understanding.
