I just recently began my time at North Park and I am studying Nursing. So far, my experience has been fantastic! I love the diversity in the school, the way the nursing program is set up, such as the classes and when they are taken, and my teachers have all been educated very well on the subjects they are teaching. I think the level of difficulty in the classes is also at a great spot. Something I would like to see change is adding more clubs on campus. I believe this would help all students, including commuter students, become more involved on campus.

I lived on campus, and the wonderful thing about on campus at North Park is that you get to know your community really quickly! Other students are familiar and for an extrovert like me, I really felt like my classmates were the people that I was safe to be myself and learn how to grow up around. The campus was beautiful, if small-ish. The professors were fully invested into their students, and the freedom to question and listen and respond was marvelous. Highly recommended!
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.
