North Central College - Naperville, IL
Major: 
Classical Civilization and History double major

Taylor chose North Central for a variety of reasons and found it the perfect place to study classic civilization and history. “Some of my favorite teachers in high school graduated from here. But the biggest reason is the size—I didn’t want 300-person lectures and never getting to know my professors. At North Central, the professors I had my first term still remember me.”

Taylor found that small classes in Latin provide the perfect learning experience and he’s also learning Greek by working individually with a professor. “Even in classes outside my major, the class size is always small enough that it doesn’t take away from the learning experience.”

A D-Term trip to Greece and Rome promises to be a high point for Taylor. “I’ll experience what I’ve spent three years studying. To stand where ancient heroes stood and see the things they saw will be the pinnacle of my studies and an amazing experience."
