Ask a Cardinal


Discover the Difference

We are happy to tell you North Central College is a fantastic school and we want you to be here. But we know you have questions, and that you need a little more detail than that. So we turned things over to the people who know best: our Cardinal family of students, faculty and staff. Watch these videos to get their honest, unrehearsed answers on why they chose to come to North Central and what keeps them here. They have each found their passion and exceeded their personal best at North Central—let them tell you why you should, too.
