North Central College Reviews
My father graduated from North Central. He loved it! I have looked at other private schools locally and have found North Central to be the best. Fits all my needs. Love the location and it's closeness to the beautiful downtown Naperville area (the suburban "Chicago"). It is a beautiful campus and has incredible teachers. They work with you and get you the best possible admissions package they can.
The best part about North Central College as a first year student was being a part of the Premier Scholars Program. It really helped me adjust to the campus, meet life long friends, understand what is expected of me in college and get acclimated to living away from my parents and family. As a junior, North Central granted me the opportunity to study abroad, which was nothing I had ever anticipated doing. I am so thankful for that experience, it changed my life and has made my college career so much more fulfilling.
Great school and campus! It offers a close-knit community and courses that will challenge you. Overall, very happy with my decision to attend North Central College!
