Public Affairs Residential College at North Mid-Quads
650 Emerson Place, Evanston IL
With brand-new facilities as of fall 2015, the Public Affairs Residential College located in North Mid Quads has earned a reputation as one of the nicest buildings on campus. The spacious kitchen is well-suited for cooking, and the bathrooms are rumored to be legendary. As a residential college, PARC also hosts thematic programming and integrates interaction with faculty fellows. Residents of PARC typically eat meals in the Allison Residential Community dining hall, but its convenient location in the Sorority quad makes it easy to branch out, whether it’s on Northwestern’s campus or in downtown Evanston.
