North Central College - Naperville, IL

Aiste Kairys

Aiste Kairys works full time in addition to attending North Central full time, but her busy schedule doesn’t stop her from making the most of what North Central has to offer. “You get chances here, so take them. They’ll work to your advantage.”

After completing high school in Lithuania, Aiste moved to the United States, earned a degree and began work in the accounting field. But Aiste has always been creative and she decided the graphic arts track of the interactive media studies major could foster her creative side. Although she commutes, Aiste is active on campus. She serves on a research committee that evaluates prospective faculty for interactive media studies and regularly contributes to the Viewfinder, an interactive media online magazine.

Aiste says she’s grateful for the experiences she’s having at North Central. “I didn’t think I’d fall in love with North Central the way I did,” Aiste says. “Everyone here is very inspiring. I’m 150 percent happy I chose to go here.”

Sam Suarez

Sam, an IMS major with a concentration in graphic arts, thumbs through the North Central catalog with excitement. "There are lots of options here, and you don't have to limit yourself to any one tool or medium,” she says. “I’ll be taking classes in Web design, Flash animation, Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign and learning how they all work together." As a student worker in the College's office of marketing and communications, Samantha has already learned that proficiency in multiple programs increases her value as an employee. To date she has worked on print ads, Web banner ads and posters, seen all over campus.
