North Central College - Naperville, IL
Art, Math, Art History triple major and History of Ideas minor

Tim Whitney is a Renaissance man. His interests are diverse and far reaching – he’s majoring in studio art and math, minoring in art history and the history of ideas. He expects to add a third minor in business administration as he continues to pursue his passions for social justice, photography and design.

“That’s the beauty of North Central, that you can pursue what you love without boundaries,” he says.

To further explore his options, Tim has made use of North Central’s support for research by presenting at the College’s Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research. During 2009, he researched the reciprocal relationship between shutter speed and aperture using a digital camera. At the 2010 Rall Symposium, he presented a business plan for a website that will ultimately catalog and rate not-for-profit social justice organizations from around the world, with the goal of helping potential volunteers and donors make informed decisions. During next December Term, he envisions visiting colleges around the United States to collect recommendations using North Central grant funding that he’s applied for.
