North Central College - Naperville, IL
Classical Civilization and English double major

Naomi added classical civilization to her English writing major to prepare for a career in the publishing industry.

She says her most memorable college experience, she says, was traveling to Rome for a D-Term study abroad course. “I was able to experience the places I had been learning about, and it made the Latin language and ancient Roman culture come alive.”

Naomi was attracted to North Central because of its financial aid and proximity to public transportation. “Availability of financial aid and on-campus jobs were overwhelmingly helpful. And I wanted a place with easy access to public transit for visits home and access to a range of internship opportunities. North Central had these with small-town charm and nearby downtown Naperville.”

Named the Outstanding Major in Classical Civilization, Naomi says, “Coming to North Central has been one of the best decisions of my life. The faculty, staff and student body create a great community that’s very welcoming and caring.
