North Central College - Naperville, IL
Major: 
Philosophy and Political Science double major, History of Ideas minor

“If you want to be actively involved in the classroom and share and exchange ideas, North Central is a great place.” It’s also a better way to learn, says Szymon, especially when it comes to philosophy.

Szymon thrives on classroom discussions and hopes to pursue a Ph.D. “The philosophy professors stimulate fabulous discussions and know their subject really well. The opportunities to share ideas teach you how to think, formulate and express your thoughts. So, when you hear or read things, you know what to think and how to express yourself.”

Szymon expressed his ideas and opinions outside the classroom by writing for the student newspaper, participating with the Philosophy Club and being part of the College Scholars Honors Program. His second major in political science and minor in history of ideas also opened a host of possibilities.
