North Central College - Naperville, IL

Allie has simple advice for North Central students: “Don’t be afraid to change your mind. If you follow the path that interests you the most, success will follow.”

Allie is majoring in English studies with minors in Chinese and Spanish because she’s fascinated by language. She shares her passion as a member of the Sigma Tau Delta English honor society and Chinese Corner—a campus group that provides her with opportunities to work with other students on speaking, writing and grammar in a relaxed setting.

“I’ve learned the importance of community,” she says. “North Central has some really fantastic clubs and organizations. As a student of language, I’m really grateful for that.”

Allie plans to join the Peace Corps and teach internationally after she graduates.
