Learn about your Admission Counselor:

Favorite thing about North Central: North Central College offers an atmosphere and community that is unlike any other! We provide family-like assets and experiences that can make anyone feel at home! Our faculty and staff work hard to make your college experience one you will never forget! Through interactive events and programs, we strive to set you up for the most success. 

Words I use to describe North Central students: Determined, friendly, sociable, driven, and dedicated! 

Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor/staff member at North Central? Being a North Central alumna, I wanted to give back to the community that helped shape the woman I am today! It offered me a place where I could learn and develop the skills that I use in both the workplace and everyday life. My goal is to make each student feel as welcomed and prepared as I did when I started my journey at North Central.

Favorite Naperville restaurant: The Lantern is my favorite restaurant because it is a staple of Downtown Naperville! It has been operating for over 50 years and not much on the inside has changed! The free popcorn machine, which has been around since the 70's, is one of my favorite features! 

Favorite season in Naperville: My favorite season on campus is autumn! The changing leaves and sweater weather give campus a home-like feel! The Riverwalk is beautiful all year round, but in autumn it is a sight like no other! 

Advice to students: Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about North Central or the transfer process! During your time as a student, my biggest piece of advice is to GET INVOLVED! Our campus has a lot to offer, from clubs to intramural teams or research opportunities to theatre, there is for sure a good fit for you!
