3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I'm not really sure what the off-campus housing policy is-- I know students can commute but I think there is a minimum age requirement to be living on their own off campus.

2 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: If you don't have a car, it does seem pretty hard to get around downtown to find places to eat. The places there are besides the numerous coffee places have extremely high prices that make a challenge for already financially struggling college students.

4 College Junior

Administration: I really respect NCU's policies on strictness in the areas highlighted and how they keep us accountable and responsible.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It has been a struggle getting the financial help I need to attend this school which I love, which is a challenge.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: We know how to have fun, but clean parties!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: It is definitely not the best, but I'm sure not the worst either. For the price of the food though... I think the quality could be much better. There is nice variety however.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The cost is a little much, and is a typical not very spacious dorm room size, but the social atmosphere is great and is much more convenient than when I commuted.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in the suites in Phillipps hall, and it's really nice to live in. There's 4 to 6 people for one bathroom and the rooms are very nice!

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Because NCU is a smaller university, the cafeteria isn't open for very long. Only an hour. That can be rather inconvenient. Meal plans don't roll over to the next week, so if you don't use every meal you have it goes to waste. The food is generally good, but sometimes it isn't. It's very hit or miss.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The community at North Central University is top notch. They really value community life, especially in the dorms. There is a bond that is formed with the people on your floor and the Resident Staff really foster an encouraging and fun environment for the students living on campus. Being that NCU is a private school, it is more expensive but in comparison to other private schools, it is a pretty good deal.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: I wish we had better options. I think a lot of the off-campus dining is really questionable.

Campus Food: I wish we had more options.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I wish we had kitchens in our dorms, so it would be easier to cook food. The dorm themselves are actually quite nice.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There is a thing called the NCU bubble.

5 College Senior

Majors: I have had an internship for a few months and have found it to be very helpful so far. I am in the Social Work program at North Central. My internship is at the Bridge for Youth which is located in Minneapolis. The Bridge for Youth is a homeless shelter for youth between the ages of ten and seventeen. They have their interns do everything that their paid staff does which has been challenging but also very helpful. I feel like I have learned a lot about the social work field from my internship so far.

Party Scene: North Central is not a party school at all and parties in the traditional sense of the word do not happen often if at all in my experience.

Athletics: Athletics are not a big part of life on campus. Few people come out to watch any of the fall or spring sports because they are too far away or they are just not interested. The only sport that draws a crowd is basketball. I believe this is due to the fact that basketball is played on campus and is easily accessible to the students.

4 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a large variety of restaurants in the area around North Central which is very nice. This includes Italian, Oriental, Mexican, and many other different restaurants.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: The financial aid process has traditionally gone poorly for me, but I think that is due to a problem with myself and not with the financial aid office at the school. One tip I have is to get everything done as soon as possible. There are some scholarships and grants that are awarded at a first come, first serve basis.

Administration: North Central is a private Christian university. Because of that, there are several restrictions placed on the students that many would consider to be extreme. I don't mind them because I have placed those restrictions on myself anyways, but there are some students at North Central who disagree with some of the restrictions. One of the most debated restrictions is the open dorms policy, which only allows people to visit floors with the opposite sex on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for four hours each day. Some think more time should be allowed.

5 College Senior

Campus Housing: I have really enjoyed living on campus because of the great atmosphere and sense of community. I have spent the past three years in the dorms and have loved every year. The dorm rooms are somewhat small and crammed, but I think that the bonding that takes place among people in the dorms more than makes up for it.

3 College Freshman

Administration: There are some rules that many students want changed such as the open dorm policy, but overall it is alright
