Northwestern's Evanston Campus

In 1995 Kellogg completed a $14-million renovation and expansion of its full-time program facilities, Leverone and Andersen Halls. The new complex contains 15 new classrooms wired for network access, 20 group study rooms, a quiet study room, a 20-terminal computer training facility, an expanded computer lab, free-standing computer terminals for checking e-mail and accessing the World Wide Web, a student lounge, lockers and a sky-lit atrium. Kellogg began construction of a $25 million, 75,000 square foot addition. The new building is an expansion of Kellogg's existing full-time Leverone/Andersen complex. The new addition will give Kellogg a total of 215,000 square feet of space. In June 2000, the Leverone/Andersen complex was named the Donald P. Jacobs Center, honoring the service of Kellogg's Dean Jacobs.

The James L. Allen Center, home of EMP and Executive Education, lies along the shores of Lake Michigan just a short walk from the Leverone/Andersen complex. The prototype for executive education centers worldwide, the Allen Center is a state-of-the-art educational and residential center, with a 220-seat amphitheater, multimedia-equipped classrooms, seminar rooms, many conference rooms, two large dining rooms and 150 bedrooms. In addition to Kellogg's executive education programs, the Allen Center hosts a number of major conferences each year, including the annual Conference on Corporate Governance, attended by CEOs and corporate directors from around the world.Evanston: Evanston, which borders Chicago, is the first in a string of North Shore suburbs reaching toward the Wisconsin border. With 74,000 people, Evanston is Illinois' sixth largest city, supporting museums, music and theater productions, art galleries, businesses and shopping districts of its own. There are more than 200 shops in Evanston, scattered across different neighborhoods. Evanston has a fine array of ethnic and gourmet restaurants.

Evanston maintains 263 acres of parks, which include five Lake Michigan beaches, running and biking trails, an indoor ice rink and 34 tennis courts.

With seven stops in Evanston, the elevated train provides convenient transportation within the city. (The "El" and another commuter rail line, Metra, also make it easy to reach downtown Chicago.) Four bus lines provide service to within four blocks of nearly every residence in the city.

Evanston features charming avenues of shops and restaurants alternating with gracious residential areas of tree-lined streets and parks.
