North Central College's location, right in the heart of downtown Naperville, gives students easy access to tons of bars and clubs within walking distance. Students can also walk about two blocks north of campus and take the train right down to downtown Chicago for even more options, with downtown nightlife literally at students' fingertips. The bars can be pricey and are definitely available to students with some extra money to throw around.
Besides a number of bars in the Naperville area, house parties are also common occurrences around North Central College. Many of the sports have their own "team" house right off campus, and these off-campus residences are known for parties. Furthermore, students who are 21 or older commonly drink in their campus-owned residences. Not everyone parties, and for people under 21, there are several off-campus movie theaters and bowling alleys to take advantage of. The College also holds a wide variety of programming for students to enjoy on the weekends. Whether they party it up or not, students can enjoy the great nightlife scene that Naperville has to offer.
