Subscribe to North by Northwestern

North by Northwestern is an award-winning newsmagazine covering and commenting on news and culture at Northwestern University. In addition to updating our website daily, we print a full-color glossy magazine three times each year. We tell unique stories in entertaining ways.

North by Northwestern NFP is an Illinois 501(c)(3) not-for-profit company. Our publication is completely independent from Northwestern University. We don’t receive any funding or support from the university or from Associated Student Government, so they can’t tell us what to say. But independence also means we’re pretty strapped for cash. We rely on advertisements and outside fundraising to host our website, buy equipment like cameras and print thousands of magazines each quarter.
