North Central College - Naperville, IL
Major: 
Organizational Communication major

Heather came to North Central to compete on its renowned forensics team. “Being part of the forensics team, I’ve gained skills that will benefit me the rest of my life and have been able to work with some amazing people.”

One of the best experiences for Heather has been working one-on-one with professors. “They’ve all been extremely helpful with class assignments, decisions about graduate schools and pushing me to pursue academic interests outside the classroom. They help you discover which path to take in life and how to go about traveling that path.”

Heather says she’s not only gained a high quality education at North Central, but had ample opportunities to build a resumé with internships and collegiate organizations. She’s headed to graduate school at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to study health communications, while working as a teaching assistant.
