If you want to be part of a winning athletic program, then you need to be a Raider. We set records and take home trophies. But more than that, we care about coaching you to develop character, confidence, perseverance and resilience. Reach out to one of our coaches if you want to explore whether the next uniform you put on should be Raider red.

Raider mania!
Play for the Raiders


Raiders are art creators. See what it’s like on our stage—or behind it. Music and theatre roles (and scholarships) are open by audition to any student, regardless of major. So if you love to sing, act, play, design or direct, get in touch, and we’ll help you explore your performance opportunities.

Browse their photos to learn their majors, hometowns and co-curricular involvements. Then feel free to email any of them (or all of them!) with any questions you have about college generally or Northwestern specifically.
