Tiffany Tindell

Tiffany always wanted to be a real-life Indiana Jones. With her globe-trotting experience through North Central College, she might just make that happen.

As a sophomore, Tiffany received funding from the Paul K. and Elizabeth Cook Richter Trusts, which support North Central students from various disciplines who conduct research around the world. She traveled to five German cities, delving into the German fascination with Native Americans.

“It was a great reward to embark on such an incredible experience,” she says. “North Central affords students of all disciplines with the spectacular amenities of a big university, but on a smaller scale.”

When she’s not on a far-flung adventure, Tiffany gains career experience by volunteering with the curatorial department at Naper Settlement Museum, an outdoor historic park in Naperville. She handles artifacts and helps design displays.

Tiffany plans to attend graduate school for museum studies and hopes to become a curator in a Native American museum.

“North Central prepares students to succeed in college, and—more importantly—in life.”
