4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I really like flat top and how cheap and fast it is. Its also in a nice spot and doesn't take long to get there.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: Campus safety doesn't show up right away if you need them. If it is an emergency, they take their time to get to you.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: House parties only. Crowded. Hot. Some parties are a need to know basis.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: We went through a bit of a hassle, and didn't receive the aid at first. A possible improvement would be a faster response.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Kman has pretty good food, but since the new renovation, the options are limited.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The housing process is kinda unorganized and you are not certain that you will get the house you want.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I like the fact that its a small community and its a very difficult school but fun.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I think it depends on the career

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics are a somewhat popular department depending on the department. However the school students all like to support the athletes.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: They have apartments that are not too far from campus.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is restaurants 10 mins away from campus so it not that far. There is a mixture of food restaurants.

4 College Freshman

Administration: There is a lot of strictness on campus. I know a couple of students who got in trouble. Usually it a fine of 100 for drinking in a dorm.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I contacted my councilor and he handled the paper work. He told me what I needed and it went great.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: The parties are okay there are a lot of people who you get to meet. There is a lot of parties that are made by the RA's of the floor so thats good.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The food is good however there is a lack of foods from different cultures.

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.

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.
