Emily Stewart

Emily knew from her first campus visit she found the right place to pursue her Spanish major. “I applied to two large universities, but when I visited North Central I was immediately able to picture myself here. I loved the idea of being able to interact with professors.”

Her instincts have proven right. “The most important experiences to me are the interactions I have with my professors outside of class on a regular basis. They’re always willing to talk to me whether or not the discussion relates to course work. That interaction has been an integral part of my success and isn’t something that happens at many other schools.”

Emily also was excited about the 50 study abroad programs available to students and chose to study Spanish in Sevilla, Spain. “The study abroad programs here are phenomenal and a wonderful experience for expanding my knowledge of Spanish culture and the language.”
