North Central College - Naperville, IL

Be Brilliant. Be Central.

Thank You for making North Central College Great!
Homecoming is one of the best North Central traditions—like a family reunion—and we thank our alumni, parents and friends who joined students on campus for the weekend celebration! 
If you have any suggestions on how to make Homecoming even better (whether you attended or not) we’d love to hear from you. Take the Homecoming survey by clicking the button below.  
Remember, the Alumni Association is here for you year-round, and there are lots of ways to be connected and involved as a member. North Central has a proud heritage and a bold path for a brilliant future — and alumni are a key part of both.

Bienvenida, willkommen, huānyíng, bienvenue, benvenuto, yōkoso, powitanie, dobro pozhalovat' — no matter how you say “welcome,” we can all agree that Welcome Week and the start of a new school year brings the campus back to life with excitement. Each of us can think back to that first class, move-in day or that first friend we made on campus. As the school year approaches and students flock to campus, start your own new tradition by coming back to campus this Homecoming, attending an alumni event near you and sharing personal and professional news at  Stay informed about campus news and how current students and fellow alumni are carrying on the NC pride “torch” by following us on Twitter (@NCAlumni) and liking us on Facebook (North Central College Office of Alumni Engagement). #ProudToBeNC!
