I wanted to go to a small collegeBright
I wanted to go to a small college since I don't like very big places, especially big universities where people are overwhelming,

What I liked of North central is that they made me choose a minor out of my program, which was music.

This helped me to be more well rounded within the Gen Ed requirements. So, I could hone my musical skills without neglecting other courses which are also important, like writing, composition and communication.

Also, all music students have to be in one of the extracurricular music ensembles, like the Concert Winds, Symphonic Winds, Cardinal

Chorus, Concert Choir, Women's Chorale, or Chamber String Ensemble. I strongly recommend the Naperville Chorus. They usually perform in the Wentz Concert Hall, which has almost perfect acoustics, and is also the place where groups like the Canadian Brass have performed in many occasions. My favorite professor was also a North Central College alumnus, who was very passionate for teaching.

I think the athletics are great, since northAveragePhysical Therapy/Exercise Science
I think the athletics are great, since north central competes in sports of the third division of NCAA and the college conference of IL and WI. To be a small college it has a lot of sports, which are most important to me, like cross country, lacrosse and soccer. It also has many intramurals like softball and tennis.

The physical education program is great because of the facilities, like the Recreation Center, the Gregory Arena and the Benedetti Wehril Stadium, where NCC has beaten Wheaton College in many occasions. Most are commuters so there is no greek life or many parties, but I think the athletics provide good opportunities of socialization.Also, for my major there are opportunities to work in some of the highest paying schools.

I love North Central College campus, I hadn'tBrightCommunications
I love North Central College campus, I hadn't heard of NCC until hearing of Naperville and the downtown. What I love is that it doesn't have walls, so it is very easy to access. When you walk out, you are in the middle of downtown Naperville, with a lot of restaurants and other stuff, as well as close to the train station. Also, the admission staff in my opinion is very helpful since they helped me since the first day of application, as well as follow-up and feedback. Also, the campus is classy and has many important highlights like the Wentz Concert Hall. The college also is part of the Wisconsin and Illinois College Conference and it has won many years.
