North Central College Reviews
Review North Central College
I think that the rooms are spacious and I highly recommend that you bunk your beds or loft them. I lived in Patterson for three years and loved the rooms there. The rooms in Res Rec are nice as well, but the rooms on the 4th floor get cold since the only source of heat comes from the floor. For the most part, people will prop their doors open so that they can say hi to people walking past, but some people might prefer to keep their doors closed. I think that the cost of living on campus is a little high, but it is totally worth it. I commuted for one year, so trust me on this!
I can't say enough positive things about Al Carius and his XC and track programs at North Central. Al is a fantastic coach and mentor, always positive and motivating. He has been at NCC for 50 years now. Imagine that! He and the other inspirational coaches have experienced great success with their top-notch D-3 running programs over the years. It's an honor to be a part of this great legacy with them, and I am humbled to be a part of the talented team of Cardinal guys and girls.
North Central is one of the most accepting and tolerant communities I've ever been a part of. Because of the location, many of our students who grew up in town are white, upper-middle class straight people, but we have a large mix of international and out of state students who certainly shake things up culturally, as well as a large population of students who concern themselves more with creating diversity than on their own studies. Many students go out of their way to create a welcoming community for religious minorities, as well as LGBTQ students. Race has not struck me as an issue among students, especially after the march for equality. When other universities demonstrated around the country in order to bring attention to the problems at their own schools, we marched in solidarity, making the statement that we would never tolerate that type of behavior here.
