North Central College - Naperville, IL
Religious Studies major, History of Ideas minor

“I think every new student should take a history of ideas course. You get a great picture of how all education ties together, learn to think critically and how to study.”

Caitlyn added the history of ideas minor because, “I loved the course material and mix of students in my classes. They’re from all majors and had different approaches to the same things. I learned so much that way.”

Caitlyn wasn’t all study. She traveled to Greece and Germany for two D-Terms, joined many service projects, worked for Campus Safety, and was a resident assistant and co-director of United Methodist Student Organization and New Visions summer camp.

“A lot of socializing happens naturally at college, but faculty say the friendships you remember most are those that challenge you to grow. The peers in my history of ideas classes certainly did that.”
