4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I love everyone here. There's a big variety in types of people- some are super conservative some are not- there's a crowd for everyone.

3 College Freshman

Academics: All of my professors have been great. I've heard some bad stories about others.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's no hotel but the dorms are fine and the people are awesome.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love North Park. It has its quirks but it's the best.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Its such a big city and there's so much to do. The neighborhood is a little sketchy but the campus is great and kinda secluded.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: we live in a diverse area which means there's a huge variety of great restaurants. Prices are good and you can get a burrito at any hour so thats great. Theres even more options downtown/ anywhere on the brown line.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The area is dangerous but as long as your smart and take advantage of escorts you're fine.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Everyone gets a great deal in my opinion.

3 College Freshman

Diversity: North Park claims to be diverse but has strong Swedish and Christian roots.

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: There is opportunity for fun if you do or if you don't drink at North Park. People drink and party but it's not super crazy in the dorms since there are strict rules so everyone is pretty discrete. There are a lot of people who don't drink so if thats not your scene thats cool.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: This is a small Christian school in a dangerous city so yes it is strict. There are ways around the strict rules you just need to be careful.

College Freshman

Greek Life: No greek life. Thank God.

College Freshman

Majors: I'm not officially in a program yet.

College Freshman

Majors: So far i've enjoyed the courses of the program i'm planning on being in.

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Campus is small so you don't need transportation on campus but when you go off campus there are tons of options for transportation. Mainly the bus and the el work great- campus security is available at night for escorts to and from the closest brownline stop.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: North Park technically does not allow students to live off campus until senior year but there are loop holes around that. The neighborhood is not expensive for apartments and they aren't too hard to find.

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: North Park has the best of all worlds in my opinion. Parties are often categorized by the sports team or social group hosting them- so you always no what your going into. Everyone knows each other so it feels safe and comfortable.

Theres no obnoxious greek life or trashy state school crap- its mainly chill. Yes- its small so you will bump into everyone you know if you go out- but its just a reminder that we have such a nice little community.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: This is a d3 school so our athletes are not amazing. The most popular team is the soccer team- the games are a lot of fun. Intramurals and frisbee are also popular.

3 College Freshman

Weather: the winter is brutal but all other seasons are wonderful!

1 College Freshman

Weather: This past winter has been the absolute worst. Living in chicago it can be 40 degrees one day thene negative 2 the next.

3 College Freshman

Majors: My professors have been very helpful with trying to find me a summer internship

3 College Freshman

Majors: I like my major because it's small so all the students know each other and help each other out.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is a fun time. They are not the nicest, but the people make it better.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: there are a lot of off campus options that are still very close to campus

4 College Freshman

Nightlife: You get sick of seeing the same people at every off campus apartment party, but it's okay because you can just go out to bars and clubs.
