Favorite thing about North Central: Students have hands-on experience either in the classroom or through various outside-of-the-classroom experiences. At a small college like NC, you will have the opportunity to create a relationship with professors, engage and participate in class, and you will have the freedom to be involved in anything you want to dedicate yourself with.

Words I use to describe North Central students: Enthused about being a Cardinal, Approachable to meet and greet people, and Passionate to lead and learn.

Why did I choose to become an admission counselor at North Central? Having admissions experience all through my undergraduate years, I knew that becoming a college admission counselor would be ideal for me. Becoming a part of the North Central Admission team has been an honor to share my Liberal Arts experience to prospective and incoming students.

Favorite Naperville Restaurant: Mesón Sabika, Giordano's and Heaven on Seven!

Favorite Season in Naperville: Fall! I love the fall scenery of orange, yellow tree leaves and the weather is perfect to walk around downtown Naperville!

Advice to Students: Research college websites, contact people who may know about the institution(s), request information… but most importantly VISIT (and visit often)!! Take a tour of campus, sit in on a class, talk with professors or coaches about your interests, and most importantly meet with your admission counselor about admission requirements, deadlines, and financial aid. Once you have done that, follow your heart and you will know which college you belong to!
