Haleigh Rajnic

Haleigh discovered the special bond that exists between North Central’s faculty and students during her first accounting class.

“The professor could tell from the look on my face I didn’t understand something. She proceeded to ask where she’d ‘lost me’ and went back and explained it again. I was so surprised a college professor would do that,” she says. “That’s when I knew North Central was the right place for me.”

Haleigh has had multiple opportunities to get hands-on marketing experience. She conducted market research for two different clients as part of her classes, and she works as an intern in North Central’s Office of Admission. She plans to pursue a career in higher education.

“Deciding on marketing was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made,” says Haleigh, who started as an undeclared major. “The coursework is challenging, but interesting. You can find ways to apply it to so many things that are happening in the world.”
