LCD Displays Create Cutting Edge Recruiting Environment for Esteemed University
Founded in 1851, Northwestern University (NU) is a private university based in Evanston, Illinois that is recognized both nationally and internationally for its innovative research and academic programs. Student recruitment is a key priority of the university as NU strives to attract top candidates of demonstrated academic achievement from diverse social, ethnic and economic backgrounds. Owing to NU’s success in this area, more than 90 percent of undergraduate applicants rank in the top 10 percent of their high school classes.
To support the university’s recruitment efforts and provide a focal point on campus for welcoming prospective students and their families, a new state-of-the-art visitor’s center was completed in the fall of 2014. The Segal Visitors Center incorporates a sophisticated design with sustainable features, a 160-seat auditorium and a spacious two-story reception area housing a Planar® Mosaic® Architectural LCD Video Wall and a Clarity® Matrix® MultiTouch Interactive LCD Video Wall System from Planar.
