I can't say enough positive things about Al Carius and his XC and track programs at North Central. Al is a fantastic coach and mentor, always positive and motivating. He has been at NCC for 50 years now. Imagine that! He and the other inspirational coaches have experienced great success with their top-notch D-3 running programs over the years. It's an honor to be a part of this great legacy with them, and I am humbled to be a part of the talented team of Cardinal guys and girls.

I think that the rooms are spacious and I highly recommend that you bunk your beds or loft them. I lived in Patterson for three years and loved the rooms there. The rooms in Res Rec are nice as well, but the rooms on the 4th floor get cold since the only source of heat comes from the floor. For the most part, people will prop their doors open so that they can say hi to people walking past, but some people might prefer to keep their doors closed. I think that the cost of living on campus is a little high, but it is totally worth it. I commuted for one year, so trust me on this!

Dorms for upper class men include apartments in downtown Naperville, and on campus two story apartments, as well as a new dorm complex with a workout facility and indoor track included inside the building. Location is great, easy to find good food and shopping. There are also shuttle buses that get students to theaters and more shopping off campus. Food is the only problem, but you learn what food items taste better after visiting the dining hall a few times. They do have papa johns pizza and other food available for a "swipe" on your flex dollars card. As well as smoothies - yum!
