First Year Orientation
Welcome Week 2019
If you are a resident student, you’ll be met by an energetic throng of students, staff and alumni when you pull up to the curb the week before classes. They will make the move-in process literally “no sweat.” If you are commuting to campus in your first year, you'll be met by that same excitement as you check in on August 14. Then, a whirlwind week of excitement begins.
We’ll cover the nuts and bolts to ensure you’re fully acquainted and equipped with everything you need—ID cards, class schedules, books and maps. But you’ll also get a jump-start on our academic environment and you'll experience a jam-packed schedule of fun and exploration that takes you from downtown Naperville to downtown Chicago. You’ll enjoy music, comedians, competitions, service projects and even a Casino Night.
Most importantly, we’ll introduce you to the values, mission, and traditions that have made North Central a special place for more than 150 years. From the formal opening Convocation to the century-old Torch Light Parade—and the ensuing pep rally of epic proportions—you’ll quickly learn why “North Central is the school we love.”
