Kira Simeone

During a transfer visit day at North Central College, Kira realized she found the right place to finish her degree. “I remember experiencing the college tour, but the standout part of the day was talking to knowledgeable people from the different departments and offices. I was so impressed when I met with the financial aid representative because I felt other schools weren’t interested in helping a nontraditional student like me afford a quality education.”

Other factors for choosing North Central were location, liberal arts curriculum and knowledgeable faculty.  “The school had an amazing reputation and cared about each of the students.”

Kira developed strong relationships with many English professors. “I knew I could talk to any of them at any time, and they were always helpful and available. I couldn’t have made it through without their support. But now, here I am, the first person in my immediate family to get a bachelor’s degree and I’m so grateful.”
