Uncovering the personalities of the Northwestern community

More about people of NU

People of NU is inspired by the popular Instagram/Tumblr Humans of New York. The project profiles various Northwestern students, faculty and staff on campus and introduces them via Facebook and Instagram. Similar to Humans of New York, subjects are found and photographed at random by members of the People of NU team. The main idea behind the project is that it allows the Northwestern population to “get to know” as many fellow students, faculty and staff as possible. Because Northwestern students tend to be very involved on campus, many feel restricted to certain circles and express a desire know a greater variety of Northwestern community members. People of NU exists to bridge the gaps between NU’s social and working groups, as well as unveil personalities unique to Northwestern.
