A BIT OF HISTORY

On May 31, 1850, nine men gathered to begin planning a university that would serve the Northwest Territory. Given that they had little money, no land and limited higher education experience, their vision was ambitious. But through a combination of creative financing, shrewd politicking, religious inspiration and an abundance of hard work, the founders of Northwestern University were able to make that dream a reality.In 1853, the founders purchased a 379-acre tract of land on the shore of Lake Michigan 12 miles north of Chicago. Northwestern is a leading research university that is home to more than 90 school-based centers and more than 50 University research centers. With an interdisciplinary culture, our research spans a spectrum of areas including neuroscience, nanotechnology, biotechnology and drug discovery.

"I wanted something that reminded me of my time at Northwestern, this piece brought an emotional component that I've never been able to find before"

A proud graduate from Northwestern Schwimmer explained that trying to rid himself of the celebrity status that came with “Friends” is something with which he still grapples. He said he is not yet at a place in his life where he can feel completely “anonymous.”“I’ve never let it stop my determination to try to be, to try to live a normal life. If I’m not cast in a certain role because of the baggage of the, I guess the one big role on ‘Friends’ … that’s my loss, but I also think it’s their loss. I can’t live my life waiting for that.”

-David Schwimmer
