Transportation: Transportation is easy and convenient. Minneapolis has buses, taxis, light-rail, biking lanes, and personal vehicle opportunities. Costs vary by type of transportation and distance traveled. but I think the costs are fair.

For long-distance travel there are three methods other than personally owned vehicles. These three are: International Airport, Amtrak Trains, and bus services like Greyhound.

Majors: I am a Secondary Social Studies Education Major and believe the program is solid. I would select it again because it has an approximate placement rate over 70% of its graduates, prepares each of us for the real world classroom, and does a variety of assessments in an ongoing manner that continuously monitors progress towards teaching licensure.

My goals are simple - graduate, become a full-time Social Studies teacher in a Middle-School, and teach for as many years as health and job available exist.

Jobs in Education are always a challenge so I do have the concern of a position upon graduation, but due to the quality of the program at NCU and their placement history, this is not as big a potential problem as it might otherwise be for finding work.

Majors: The specific Education Program I am enrolled in is a high speed and full-time process. Once accepted into the Education Department the student is assigned to a different school in the community each semester with a cooperating teacher. During the assignment the student does lesson planning, test proctoring, teaching, and all other aspects of the full-time teacher. The hands-on environment makes it possible to learn what the profession is really like from the inside, and because each semester is in a different school, the student also gets to see his/her field (Social Studies for me) presented in different ways to students from various communities. A very attractive aspect of this program is that almost seven of ten students obtain work in the school they did their final student teaching semester. All of this is combined with the academic work in Teaching Foundations, Lesson Planning, and course specific classes - American History, Geography, Political Science, etc. I do enjoy the program and the professors teaching and guiding us through the program. While structured tightly, and challenging often, it remains an enjoyable and pleasant environment to learn the teaching profession.

Local Atmosphere: Twin Cities Minnesota has cultural, historical, sports, theater, and political activities for ever enjoyment.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: Very little exists in the immediate vicinity of the campus, but working outward a few blocks and more opens up many possibilities.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Security is well-trained, available and friendly. Health facility non-existent - campus is one block from a Level 1 trauma center so great care easily available.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Focus is on education. Athletics is one path among many and treated in this manner.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: Housing/Apartment availability varies from minimum rent to high rent district just a few blocks away. No one should be dissatisfied with choices.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Financial Aid officers are knowledgeable, friendly, and keep an open door policy. Their emphasis on preparing and planning, and borrowing as little as necessary is refreshing.

3 College Junior

Diversity: National heritage - excellent. Sexual orientation - abysmal.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: It is functional, clean, and facilities work.

5 College Junior

Academics: The Education Department maintains currency with state and federal guidelines on what the students will be required to know to obtain teacher licensing. Very attentive to students as well as curriculum.

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: When you come to North Central you sign a contract that says you will not drink alcohol or do drugs. If you are caught it can be a basis of expulsion from the school. It makes sense because many students coming here plan on becoming pastors, youth pastors, missionaries, or in some form of ministry.
