New surface, new look for stadium turf

This summer, the College will install a new state-of-the-art FieldTurf playing surface at Benedetti-Wehrli Stadium for football, soccer and lacrosse. North Central was among the first College Conference of Illinois & Wisconsin institutions to install an artificial playing surface in 2001. Synthetic fields typically have a 10-year life span. Once the new artificial turf is installed, the eight-lane Buikema Track will be resurfaced. The entire project will be completed in time for fall sports to begin practice in August.

Concert Choir immersed in Italian musical history and tradition

A first-ever European tour to Rome, Venice and Florence March 16-24 gave North Central’s Concert Choir an immersion in musical history and tradition. In addition to singing in world-renowned cathedrals, like St. Peter’s Basilica at Vatican City in Rome and St. Mark’s Basilica in Venice, the choir visited Cremona, home of the Stradivarius violin, and Florence. “The whole experience was geared to music students and so it was very special for us,” says Professor of Music Jeordano Martínez, director of the Concert Choir.
