NESP is all about stakes-free mathematical exploration.

No grades or homework involved! Weekly sessions are led by upper-class peers and will involve problem-solving and discussion centered on hand-picked advanced mathematical topics. There are no prerequisites, as the content you’ll explore strays far afield from the standard pre-college math curriculum. We hope the program will reveal a different face of mathematics to you!

Here are some anonymous comments from past NU students  on their experience with NESP:

“I felt like I could actually focus on learning math rather than competing with others on problems. I also loved that the upperclassmen would stop by the breakout rooms to help us out with problems (they're super knowledgeable!)”

“I really enjoyed being part of NESP and look forward to any future events!”

We welcome applications from all interested Northwestern undergraduates
