North Central College - Naperville, IL
Physical Education major

Lindsay wanted a career she was more passionate about, so after a few years in sales, she enrolled at North Central College to earn a degree in physical education.

“My career aspirations were to become certified and prepared to teach physical education at the K-12 level,” says Lindsay, who’d previously earned a bachelor’s degree at a different school. “The combination of traditional classroom teaching along with practical experiences has allowed me to apply all that I’ve learned. I not only feel ready to teach physical education, but I feel confident that North Central has done everything in its power to prepare me.”

Lindsay discovered how much she enjoyed working with young athletes during a previous coaching opportunity. After an extensive college search, she landed in Naperville.

“If you’re looking for a school where you will get the best of everything from athletics to education, and where faculty and peers care about you, come to North Central College,” she says. “I wanted challenging coursework, along with the support of faculty and peers. I found that here.”
