North Park University is a really great campus to get your college education. It is full of the latest technology and is full of diversity. I feel these are what makes this university so unique! The professors are extremely caring and are always willing to help out if needed. It is located in Chicago which is definitely a plus. There are so many things to learn about and explore in this big city. The people are truly amazing and this makes my college experience so rewarding. The opportunities are endless. North Park is located near the home of the Chicago Cubs! It was an awesome feeling to be part of the World Series 2016! I am only a sophomore at North Park, and I hope I am given the opportunity to graduate from here. The tuition is very expensive for me, but I'm trying my best to get really good grades and apply for available scholarships.

I’ve had a great experience attending North Park. The professors are a big influence at the school; they spend extra time and effort to assist all students and constantly encourage us to go beyond the boundary to exceed in our curriculum.

North Park provides programs for students to learn about the community and become active in school activities. Their facilities are paramount to my education, they offer a comfortable environment to study, learn, and communicate with students and staff.

I believe diversity is still an issue and they can gain more reputation by reaching out to students of all backgrounds and nationalities. However, what they lack in diversity, North Park makes up for with student groups for Black, Asian, Latino, Middle Eastern, and LBGTQA to help integrate them in-and-out of student life.
North Park is a great enviornment, most people on campus are extremely kind and helpful. My favorite place on campus? Brandel Library! As an UG student you have access to our Writing center and may loan out a laptop if you were to forget yours at home.
