Everyone is so understanding and there's always someone to help you with something; whatever you may need. There's a person for everything!

North Park is a great school for three reasons: 1. It is easy to find a place to fit and belong whether cheering on the soccer team or enjoying pancakes in the cafeteria. 2. The professors are really relate able and easy to connect with. They go the extra mile on social media too! 3. The urban Chicago setting is a perfect back drop for a wonderful play land of adventure.
