North Central College - Naperville, IL
Human Resource Management major

Anna transferred to North Central so she could “walk into a class and see familiar faces” rather than feel lost among thousands of students. The College’s size has provided many other benefits as well.

“There are so many opportunities for leadership,” she says. “Our student clubs are smaller, so I could join the Student Human Resource Group (SHRG) as a sophomore, hold an executive board position the following year, and then get elected president as a senior. I’ve made business connections and friendships through student organizations that will take me places in my career and personal life.”

Anna interns at RCM Industries; she found out about the opening through a North Central alum who had contacted her advisor.

“It turned out we worked closely together on the SHRG board,” Anna says.
