WHAT I LIKED

North Central has a variety of resourceful faculty and staff that are committed to helping students succeed in any field. The faculty here have a primary focus on teaching, so there are no TAs teaching classes. There are career development resources everywhere. Mental health is prioritized strongly. Especially in the Psychology department, there are excellent faculty who are very knowledgeable and always willing to help. The dining hall is the only downside to North Central. The campus is amazing, and there are so many opportunities for involvement, leadership, growth, and career development, even for freshmen. Undergraduate research is very important here. They really prepare you for your future career field or graduate school.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

The only thing I don't like about North Central College is the food. The dining hall isn't great, but it does have options for vegetarians, vegans, and avoiding gluten. Other than that, North Central is amazing.

WHAT I LIKED

North Central College is great if you are a student-athlete, who is driven to reach the top of their game and is willing to miss out on some of the bigger school opportunities like more faculty, more parties, better name recognition, etc.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Kaufman needs to make better food and maybe provide a dining experience for student-athletes to get better food.

WHAT I LIKED

North Central College is a small college where you are able to build relationships with professors and other staff. Classrooms are small and the quality of education is great. It is also a great school for first-generation students because we have a program that is dedicated to making the journey easier for first-gen students throughout all 4 years of college. It is also located right next to downtown Naperville, where there are lots of fun things to take part in.

WHAT I didn’t LIKE

Everyone has different experiences when they're in college, at NCC I would say it is easier to make friends when you live on campus or if you are an athlete because as a commuter it is sometimes very hard to make friends, especially if you don't spend lots of time on campus.
