Favorite thing about North Central College:  All of the opportunities! North Central College has a versatile and well-rounded stock of resources available from all facets.  I love that North Central offers convenient and supportive resources that ensures that all faculty, staff, and students are supported, focused, and successful.                                                              

Words I use to describe North Central students:  Ambitious, Prepared, and Bright. The students at North Central are eager to learn and are very determined in pursuit of their degrees.

Why did I choose to become an admission counselor at North Central? North Central offered me the opportunity to fulfill several things I was looking for during my employment search. I was looking for a position that would allow me to be a resource for people, and I love that we get to travel!

Favorite Naperville Restaurant: My favorite Naperville restaurant is Jin 28 which is located in downtown Naperville. I love the sushi, crab rangoon, and the fried rice. Often times there are so many lunch specials! Especially on Thursdays during lunch ($5 sushi rolls).

Favorite Season in Naperville: The Fall season is my favorite, simply  because of the scenery and the ambiance it has throughout the campus. The many different oranges, reds, yellows, and browns from fallen leaves. I enjoy the cooler weather and the kind of clothes I get to wear during the season. 

Advice to Students: Be prepared, ambitious, and thorough before, during, and after the college search.
