Favorite thing about North Central: The sense of community and the vast number of opportunities, especially those that allow students to interact with faculty both in and out of the classroom on a consistent basis. People here really care about you and get involved in your experience . . . and work hard to find many different ways to help you get where you want to go.
Words I use to describe North Central students: Friendly, involved, and interested/interesting
Why did I choose to become an admission counselor/staff member at North Central? Every time I met with anyone on campus, I became more and more excited about this place; the people are so genuine and welcoming, and the College is constantly growing and changing. I realized how special it is and wanted to become part of it.
Favorite Naperville Restaurant: It’s a three-way tie between Meson Sabika, On the Border, and The Melting Pot, but I love the overall variety - especially trying cuisines from around the world.
Favorite Season in Naperville: While fall weather is usually great around here and the trees are beautiful, I love summer in Naperville. There’s so much to do outside.
Advice to Students: Use our online Course Substitution Guides to assist you in determining which courses may transfer . . . and then schedule an individual planning meeting on campus with me to get an unofficial transcript evaluation. At that time I also encourage taking a campus tour, meeting with a faculty member, and maybe even sitting in on a class. And afterward, keep in touch! I can help make this the most clear, effective and stress-free process possible.
Visiting North Central:
You can always arrange an individual campus visit to meet with a transfer counselor for an unofficial evaluation of your transcripts – and also take a tour of our campus in Naperville's Historic District and meet with a faculty member in your intended major. Simply call or e-mail me or our office (630-637-5800) to make arrangements. Be sure to bring copies of your transcripts for review! Also, consider attending a Transfer Visit Day (Sat., Feb. 15).
