North Central College - Naperville, IL
Exercise Science major, Dance minor

As Mychall considered different colleges and universities, North Central’s liberal arts program stood out. “I realized I could pursue a medical career while still being involved in music and theatre and earn a dance minor.”

Mychall’s goal is to become a physical therapist or other medical professional who treats performers, so he’s majoring in exercise science while studying dance. He has experience with gymnastics, ballroom dance and hip hop and has choreographed children’s theatre. At North Central, he has performed in “Cats,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “The Wedding Singer.”

In preparing for a possible medical career, Mychall has shadowed doctors and nurses and worked as a pharmacy technician. “However, if a door to performing opened for me, I’d take it, whether it’s dancing or performing theatrically. North Central can open so many doors to your future as long as you take advantage of what it has to offer.”
