Prospective students are invited to a Visit Day program on Friday, March 2. North Central admissions staff will present on the College's academic programsstudent lifeadmission guidelines and financial aid. Student ambassadors will lead walking campus tours, as well.

“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.”

A student life fair will detail the many opportunities for student involvement and engagement on campus. Participants can explore the community around North Central with trolley tours of the city of Naperville. Others might be interested in pursuing college athletics and will hear about them from North Central's athletics coaches.

There will also be information on the College's academic highlights and an academic fair where visitors can meet North Central faculty.

“What’s most unique in a small school setting are the opportunities for one-on-one relationships with professors,” said Tony Miranda, an accounting major who went to work in Deloitte’s global tax department after graduation.  “My professors played a crucial role in helping me get to where I am today.”
