What really stands out for me about North Central: The dedication of faculty and staff. They really make every effort to help you meet your academic and personal goals - and have some fun along the way!

Words I use to describe North Central students: active, curious, and friendly

Naperville is… a terrific community in which to live and study! Just walk two minutes and you are in the heart of Naperville with all its shops and restaurants and parks. And downtown Chicago is just a 30-minute train ride away.

Something interesting about me: I was an exchange student in Germany and lived overseas for 5 years.

Favorite Movies: "While You Were Sleeping" for great scenes from Chicago, The Count of Monte Cristo, and The Three Musketeers.

Favorite Naperville Restaurant:  La Sorella di Francesca for some of the best pizza to be found anywhere in the world

Favorite Seasons: I can't pick just one!  I love both Spring (March - May) and Fall (September - November).  They are both great times to be outdoors in the Chicago area.  In the Spring, the world is green and new.  In the Fall, the air is crisp and cool; and the trees are decorated with red and gold!   

Advice to students: Choosing the best college for you can be overwhelming, but it is possible to find a good fit! Take time to consider the type of environment in which you feel most comfortable and will learn most effectively (e.g. class and campus size, location, access to professors, etc.) Be sure to ask questions. If you can, try to visit the campus. If that's not possible, ask to be connected with a current student or recent graduate. 

Campus Visits:
Whether you will be starting your university studies for the first time or transferring to complete your degree, visiting campus is a great way to learn about all that North Central has to offer.  To schedule a visit, just call us at +1 630 637 5810 or email me at msotermat@noctrl.edu.
