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

“What’s great about North Central’s history department is the flexibility and opportunities to sample everything and then focus on your area of interest,” says William.

William has worked in the College’s Archives, conducted research at Naper Settlement and presented his research on different topics at the Rall Symposium for Undergraduate Research.

“During my senior year I hope to work at the National Archives in Chicago as part of my Capstone Seminar paper and College Scholars Honors thesis.”

William carries a second major in political science, minor in history of ideas and is an officer of the Student Government Association. A member of the forensics team, he was a national finalist twice. “I enjoy forensics; it gets my competitive juices going. And I like to travel, talk and meet with different people. It’s great I can do all this and my other interests, too.”

William plans to pursue graduate school and teach American history at the college level.
