Hoffman said he researched North Central before he visited campus, and it didn’t take long for him to feel he belongs here.

“I fell in love with it the minute I stepped on the campus,” he said. “It’s a great program. Everyone is really disciplined. Everyone looks out for each other.”

Hoffman is majoring in interactive media studies and his dream is to be a video-game designer.
