One of the key goals of North Central College’s 2007-2012 Strategic Plan is to foster “a culture of inquiry” in which intellectually ambitious students can advance as far as their motivation and curiosity will take them.
More students than ever before are walking the campus of North Central College. In September, enrollment topped 2,726 total students, the highest ever, boosted in part by a record first-year class of 529. In addition, the College welcomed a transfer class of 325, along with 201 part-time undergraduates. The graduate enrollment of 342 is up about 30 students from 2007-2008.
North Central College is a great place in the middle of somewhere. The vibrant campus atmosphere, an enviable location in a great Midwestern city and connections to one of the world’s great cities—Chicago—are characteristics that transform the lives of the students every day and serve as a foundation for the College’s identity. While “location” offers different benefits to different people, students understand that it’s those transformations that are key to their four years at North Central College.
