North Central College Top Questions

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?


I wish I knew the cafeteria food was terrible. There are other options for food, but the main cafeteria flat out sucks except on saturday and sunday.


Located in Naperville, the prices of nearby restaurants are only slightly elevated.


I wish I would of known how to get the right loans in place and how to pay for school. Not knowing what to do led to a lot more stress for being a freshman in college. Also, I wish I would of known how to get more involved with the school. There are a lot of different clubs and jobs availabe and it would of been nice to know how to get more involved and getting my name out in the college.


I wish that i would have known how hard it was going to be as a commuter. Being a commuter I don't feel like i'm a part of the college community at all. I'm an incredibly outgoing girl, but even so it was hard. Your friends that you meet can't just walk down the hall and ask you to hang out, so I never really get to hang out with people from school.


Really I can't think of much that I would have like to known before coming to college because my high school prepared me academically and other aspects are a part of the college expeience. It is more enlightening to learn from one's mistakes rather than knowing everything from the start.

I do not wish that I had known anything more before I went to North Central College.
