Life in Student Village

Life in Student Village is documented in photographs before the residence hall was removed to make way for a new Science Center.

In its 45 years, Student Village residence hall was home to thousands of North Central College students. With three towers, three floors in each tower, and three rooms on each of the floors, Student Village allowed its residents to connect and interact daily in many ways. Whether studying in the lounge, hanging out in their rooms, or painting the large windows on the first floor, residents brought the walls and halls of their small but mighty community to life.
