Favorite thing about North Central: Its small size because it helps foster community. Just a few days into my job here I was already running into familiar faces all over campus. It's also great how close it is to downtown Naperville and the river walk.
Words I use to describe North Central students: Well-rounded, intelligent, friendly.
Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor at North Central? I decided to be part of Shimer's move to the campus because I saw that North Central values a lot of the things that Shimer does: dialogue, intellectual curiosity, community, empathy, and fun!
Favorite Naperville Restaurant: I've yet to explore most of them but I like Quigley's because they show soccer games and Bangkok Village because they offer great Thai food just across the street from campus.
Favorite Season in Naperville: I've only yet experienced summer here but I suspect it will be the fall when students return to campus. I'm also looking forward to seeing the campus covered in snow and in springtime bloom.
Advice to Students: Give yourself the time to get to know the schools you are thinking about attending. Visit the campus more than once if you can. Talk to students and professors and sit in on some classes. Don't hesitate to ask questions!
