North Central College - Naperville, IL
Theatre major, Dance minor

Heidi fell in love with North Central because of the College’s theatre program and facilities. Being so close to Chicago helped, too.

“There are amazing internship opportunities—North Central students can get experience working as an actor at professional theaters in Chicago,” she says.

Minoring in dance will open more doors for Heidi, since many productions require actors “who are multi-faceted with training in music and dance.” Her goal is to become a working actor when she graduates.

“The faculty have been amazingly helpful. I can approach all my professors in the theatre and dance departments and they’ll always provide guidance,” she says.

“North Central has prepared me more than I could’ve hoped. The education has gone above and beyond—I feel completely prepared to graduate and put everything I’ve learned into practice.”
