Patrice Batryn

Freshman Admission Counselor



+1 630 637 5815

Favorite thing about North Central: The tight-knit community! While we have tons of student organizations that cater to a wide range of student interests, there is a strong general sense of cardinal pride throughout campus.

Words I use to describe North Central students: Involved and motivated. Many students are involved in multiple on-campus activities. Through both academics and extracurriculars, students are always discovering and creating new experiences for themselves.

Why did I choose to become an Admission Counselor at North Central? I had a great experience as a student and a student worker in multiple offices on campus during my undergraduate career. The faculty and staff have a genuine love of North Central, and I wanted to help future prospective students see themselves continuing their education at North Central.

Favorite Naperville restaurant: Jackson Ave. Pub has the BEST burger in Naperville. Frost Gelato is a must for dessert!

Favorite season in Naperville: Fall! There are always fun events going on for the start of the new school year. Plus, the changing leaves always makes campus very colorful and cozy.

Advice to students: Step out of your comfort zone and try new things! You could find new passions, hobbies, and career paths. In the process, you'll learn a lot about yourself.
