So... hubby and I have plans to move to the Chicago suburbs from Central FL once I get my undergrad or shortly thereafter. I am very much interested in getting my graduate degree in Education.... are there any good universities in the AH area?

Lake Forest College and Northwestern are fairly close.

They are both expensive but really good.

How far are you looking to travel?

I think you could probably take classes at half dozen or soschools close to AH.

Olivet Nazarene, National-Lewis, DePaul and Roosevelt all have campuses / extension sites close by. Trinity U is a little bit further north. If you drive into Chicago the closest campuses are probably North Park and Northeastern Il.

All are loads less expensive and less selective than Northwestern...

National Louis is known for education, I believe that's their focus. I have no 1st hand knowledge.

isn't there an extension of Northern out west of Woodfield? I'm thinking Hoffman Est. I think it's for Masters programs, but i'd have to look into it.

National Louis is in Lisle [possibly Naperville] i think... my son will be transferring there next year. From A.H. that may be a 30+ minute ride, no traffic. over 60 in high traffic periods.
