Clara Hur

Clara knew after one campus visit that she would be happy at North Central. She found everything she was looking for in a college—accessible professors, elaborate study abroad programs, and a wide variety of campus clubs.

“The opportunities here and the support from the East Asian Studies faculty are the best,” she says.

Clara is an active member of the student group ASK (Asian Student Konnection) and has taken full advantage of multiple study abroad opportunities. She took classes at Seoul National University in South Korea and will spend two terms studying in Japan. During that time, she will also intern at a local school.

Clara is interested in Japanese-Korean relations and plans to pursue a master’s degree after she graduates from North Central.
