Join us for a Visit Day!

Our First-Generation Visit Days are campus visit opportunities designed specifically with prospective first-generation college students in mind. First-generation students are defined as neither parent having a four-year college degree.

Experience Cardinal First


These programs allow you to experience how North Central's award winning Cardinal First program mentors and supports first-generation college students throughout your entire college career. The event includes a presentation on the Cardinal First program, lunch with current first-gen students and a walking tour of our campus led by a student tour guide. Learn even more about the work we're doing with first-generation students in this NPR feature article and radio story.
