Commencement 2010: A Notable Finale

A stormy forecast on June 12 provided the perfect opportunity to enlist the air-conditioned and roomy environment of the new Res/Rec Center for the College’s 145th Commencement. After a few adjustments to the traditional procession and with the help of audio-visual equipment, the 598 graduates who attended and their families and friends enjoyed the ceremony while thunder boomed outside.

Cardinal Green becomes a Sustainable Strategy

The word “sustainability” has become much more than an abstract concept around the campus of North Central College. Managing resources in a more responsible way in a global environment is a practice that has become entrenched in the operation of the institution.

Weekend Life Thrives

Kelly Carew ’10 remembers her first year on campus when she spent many weekend evenings hanging out at Rall Hall. “My friends and I would struggle to come up with something to do on the weekends,” she says. “Now it’s a habit that we go to programs on Saturday night—the campus has become alive.”

Mock Trial Team Advances to National Tournament

When seven members of the Mock Trial team advanced to compete in the American Mock Trial Association national tournament in March, they didn’t know they’d be facing the top teams in the entire country, trying cases against the Universities of Minnesota, Michigan, Chicago and Notre Dame. The team finished the tournament with a 3-5 record.

President's Message

Watching throngs of students walk up the hill from Merner Field House and the Res/Rec Center every morning, juggling two or three on-campus events nearly every evening, I had a number of “aha” moments this April. Something was different from the 19 previous springs that Benna and I have been privileged to live on North Central’s campus. Certainly the more than 250 students living in the Res/Rec Center is a part of it. They’ve changed the foot traffic pattern of the campus.

Be Cardinal Green

The common thread is sustainability, and these initiatives are all part of how North Central College is incorporating sustainable techniques and technologies into physical campus development, along with business and work environment practices that can be replicated by other businesses and colleges.
