Northwestern University students watch soccer and lacrosse games at Lakeside Field, on the shore of Lake Michigan; this sprawling 240-acre campus is located along this Great Lake, just 12 miles north of Chicago. Founded in 1851 by Methodist churchmen, this small college has grown into one of the leading research universities in the United States. Beyond the classroom, the university takes advantage of its lakeside location with the Northwestern University Sailing Center, where the entire Northwestern community and general public can enjoy sailing, windsurfing, and lakeside recreation while enjoying the spectacular views of Chicago.
