Additional options on select Campus Visit Days

  • January 21 - Montaigne Scholarship Event: Do you like to read - and have intelligent conversation with fellow readers? Is every new book a chance to dig into questions that really matter? If so, the Shimer Great Books School at North Central College may be the perfect place for you. We want to help open the door. The Montaigne Scholarship provides substantial tuition relief for students seeking to join the Shimer Great Books School at North Central College. It also offers a taste of what students do in the Shimer School, where we read, discuss and write about the “best that has been thought and said in the world.” 

    We think of the Shimer School as part of a “great conversation.” The Montaigne Scholarship Event is our invitation to join that conversation and carry it on with all of us in the Shimer School. For more information and to register for this scholarship competition, please visit the scholarship event page and contact Alex Resendiz at or 630-637-5800.

    For the Montaigne scholarship event, students will:
    • Read an essay by Michel de Montaigne

    • Write an original response

    • Participate in a seminar discussion with peers 

  • January 21 - Fine Arts Scholarship Auditions: Fine Arts Scholarships are available for new incoming students. Learn more and register!
  • January 21 and February 18 - Engineering Make & Take Event: Experience Engineering at North Central College first-hand by attending a unique open house event. Meet with the Director of Engineering to learn how our programs prepare you to be among the best of 21st century engineers. You'll also have an opportunity to work in the lab with our 3-D design software and printers. Create an item and take it with you! Learn more and register!
