July 2017 43 E v a n s t o n Evanston Evanston sits on the shore of Lake Michigan about 12 miles north of downtown Chicago. Many of the North Shore's most popular attractions can be found along Sheridan Road as it traces the lakefront, and that includes Northwestern University's Evanston campus, where the Norris University Center has 14 meeting rooms, including the McCormick Auditorium and the Louis Room. At Northwestern Pritzker School of Law, the 700-seat Thorne Auditorium and adjacent lobby recently reopened after a renovation. The school also offers about 20 additional conference rooms and a courtyard for up to 300 people. Northwestern's Kellogg School of Management opened its 415,000-square-foot flagship building in March. Its stunning event space includes the glass- walled White Auditorium for 300-person events and a "floating" glass-box conference room. Just a short drive south of campus on Sheridan Road takes visitors to the 1894 lakefront mansion of former U.S. Vice President Charles Gates Dawes, which he donated to Northwestern University. North of campus, Sheridan Road leads to the 1873 Grosse Point Lighthouse, which groups can tour June through September, and a little farther north, the road takes visitors to the Baha'i House of Worship, where free docent-led tours are available.
