New academic majors at North Central College will be among those represented at the Visit Day, including engineering (computer, mechanical and electrical), health science, neuroscience and the Shimer Great Books School.
The engineering open house will include demonstrations of robots and 3-D printing and information on North Central’s unique curriculum, which begins fall 2018. Or, participants can learn how the newly introduced health science major prepares graduates for professions in community health, nonprofit organizations, insurance companies or pharmaceutical sales. Others might be interested in how students and faculty in the Shimer Great Books School follow the Socratic Method to discuss readings of primary texts.
“Across all majors, we prepare our students with the qualities employers are looking for: leadership and an ability to work in teams, solve problems and communicate effectively,” said President Troy Hammond. “North Central College is among the best at preparing students for success.”
