North Central College - Naperville, IL

Message from the President

We’re finally welcoming spring at North Central College. The flowers have bloomed and the campus has come to life with students pedaling their Cardinal red bikes. It was a rough winter in terms of cold and snow, but our faculty and staff, particularly our maintenance department, kept the campus productive and functioning.

New facility enables the sciences to collaborate, teach & research

Schematic designs are nearly complete for a premier science facility that will combine all the departments of the Science Division and transform the entire campus. The floor plans reflect the thoughtful input—and long-held dreams—of faculty who envision how they will teach in the future and address the need for graduates with STEM educations. 

Campus ministry: A celebration of the past, present and future

Twenty years ago an experienced and compassionate pastor with a special energy for social justice and evangelism came to North Central College to become campus chaplain.
