Carl Monk

Carl felt a strong sense of community the moment he set foot on North Central’s campus.  He soon discovered it wasn’t just the students who fostered such a close-knit environment.

“The interactions between students and professors are some of the numerous advantages students have here,” Carl says. “I know I can drop by the history offices at any time and the professors will bend over backward to help me.”

Carl’s admiration for his professors factored heavily into his decision to pursue a career as a college history professor. After graduating from North Central, he’ll begin working on a master’s program in history at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee.

“The professors have been there for me every step of the way,” says Carl. “They were just as excited as I was when I got into graduate school. There’s something special about working with people who care that much about you and want to make sure you succeed.”

Carl created his own research project as part of his history capstone class and spent a term working on it. It was one of many valuable experiences he gained in North Central’s program.

“It gave me the chance to actually be a historian and take part in historical conversations,” he says.
