Phillip Swistowicz

Phillip knew from his first practicum experience that he wanted to become an art teacher. “I knew in that middle school classroom I had made the right choice for my career. North Central’s comprehensive education program allowed me to not only observe, but instruct at every level before student teaching. These practicums were so valuable to my development as an educator.”

Philip also found North Central’s new facilities posed the perfect environment to enhance his own artistic skills and exhibit his work. “Meiley-Swallow Hall the Fine Arts Center are very creative environments. I spent countless days and nights within the studio walls, creating the finest artwork of my life.”

Looking back on his four years, Philip says, “North Central gave me lots of great memories and the chance to develop lasting relationships. The smaller classes provide a comfortable environment and the professors know who you are and care how you’re doing.”
