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.


Homecoming is a time to enjoy smiles, laughs, handshakes and hugs. Celebrate with our alumni, students, families and friends during Homecoming 2016 by attending the Reunion Celebration on Saturday evening, October 29. Come dance, dine and celebrate the informed, involved, principled and productive Outstanding Alumni at the Reunion Celebration. Register here! Cheer on the newest members of the Athletic Hall of Fame at the induction ceremony Saturday morning. Check out a full schedule of all the ways you can be a part of Homecoming 2016. We truly hope you are able to join so we can say #NCWelcomeHome to our Cardinal Family. 

As always, remember — It’s a great day to be a Cardinal!
