Around Town

With as much as we offer on campus, you’ll also want to make use of the valuable recreational resources in the Naperville community. Take a stroll or jog along the famed Riverwalk, a run or ride on the DuPage River Trail, a class with our partners at the YMCA, or a yoga session at a downtown fitness club. If you’re around for the summer, get in some laps at historic Centennial Beach. At North Central, staying fit isn’t a resolution—it’s a way of life.
