North Central College - Naperville, IL
Chemistry major

Peggy was a little nervous about returning to school after a 13-year hiatus. Her apprehension quickly subsided after her first classes at North Central.

“The availability of resources is phenomenal. The professors seem to really care and always make time for questions and to help,” Peggy says. “Coming back to school after such a long absence was very intimidating, but I received a lot of support from the staff and other students.”

Peggy works full time as a paralegal while taking classes at night. She’s a member of North Central’s Mock Trial team and plans to attend law school after she graduates to pursue a career in intellectual property law.

“Chemistry is a great background for that field,” she says.
