“Coming to a new country where everything is so different, then having that personal touch and an admission counselor who was so helpful made the difference for me,” says Nguyen (photo, above). “I cherish my whole experience at North Central and have met people from all over the world. I’ve attended every single event the College has held and made wonderful friends. It’s become my home.” After she graduates from North Central, Nguyen hopes to attend graduate school and has applied to Optional Practical Training (OPT), a program for international students to work in the United States.
