4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are tons of apartments and houses around campus, but they can be pretty pricey.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Downtown Naperville has tons of restaurants that are great.

3 College Freshman

Administration: The school is pretty lenient with most things, however if you are doing anything remotely bad there is one power-hungry officer who will ticket the crap out of you.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got the top scholarship right off the bat which was nice. However, I still need more money than what the school will provide.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are great if you know people, but the parties suck if you don't.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Some of the food could be better, but the Cage and Boho have good food and most of the time Kaufman is okay.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It's way better than having to commute each day! Living on campus allows students to interact more with their school and the community.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not have any knowledge about the off-campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: The school is located next to downtown Naperville, so there is always a new place to go to. There are very many restaurants downtown and they seem very good.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: NCC was willing to give me a scholarship as well as a grant, and they were helpful in discussing cost. Unfortunately, like most schools, it was still not exactly enough to help me.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The Cage has relatively good food, and Kauffman can have good food sometimes, but too often there is food that is not at all acceptable.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Sybert so it is an old building but I love it

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: The housing off campus is very nice, but also expensive. On campus housing is just as good.

College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no Greek life on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: We are located right next to downtown naperville where there are tons of food options.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: We are very good at sports for being a D3 institution. The support for athletes on campus is amazing. We are most well known for our national title winning track and field and cross country programs.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: In the athletic training program we have unique learning experiences inside and outside of the classroom.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Most of the policies are there for the best at North Central.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I would not change my choice in school to study athletic training. North Central's program is amazing and offers several opportunities in addition to keeping up with the certification standards of CAATE.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I feel very safe on campus. There has never been a time when I have felt in danger walking alone, with that being said you still have to take proper precautions.

Campus safety is not my favorite. They are not always very helpful and their response time is horribly slow!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: The food is better than most other campuses. The food is edible and while it seems to be getting steadily better, it still falls short of desirable. The addition of the innovative kitchen at the Cage is amazing, but past that, there are limited options, especially on weekends. Plus, the forced purchase of a meal plan is outrageous especially when we have a kitchenette in our dorm. As upperclassmen, there should be more options for dorming that allow you not to buy a meal plan.

Also, someone should care about the Boilerhouse and actually keep it stocked.

College Freshman

Campus Housing: I am a commuter but from what I hear from my friends that are living on campus the housing is perfect.

5 College Freshman

Majors: The difficulties I have faced so far with this major is actually doing the coding. The computer science 160 course was the first time that I have done coding in my entire life. The only tips/ advice that I give is never slack up because it does not get any easier with time, that it progresses and gets harder.

College Freshman

Greek Life: We do not have Greek life at our campus.

4 College Freshman

Administration: One of the polices is that underage drinking is prohibited. It is not only limited to the person consuming it but also being at a party that has alcohol.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

North Central College is not perfect, but it does what it promises. The College's mission is to "prepare students to be informed, involved, principled, and productive citizens and leaders over their lifetime." North Central College accomplishes this mission by providing lots of personal interaction with staff and faculty while still leaving the education largely up to each individual student. All professors have office hours, but students have to take the initiative to visit during these hours or set up appointments to meet at another time. The faculty goes out of its way to help and get to know students, but students have to do their part to get the most out of the experience. Additionally, there are events and programs, both academic and non-academic, going on; students just have to make the choice to go to them.

If given the chance to do it all over again, most students would not change their decision to attend North Central. The College's academics are good, and the academic adviser program aligns students with professors in their fields of study and their future occupation. The College's location, right in the suburbs of Chicago, is a gateway for job and internship opportunities for students and alumnus. Career services and academic advisers help guide students to finding jobs and internships during college and after graduation. North Central College is a place where all students are said to be "central," and it appears that the administration has taken this to heart by keeping personal interaction with faculty, staff, and fellow students an integral part of the experience.
