What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am an online student at North Central University. I enjoy the one-on-one class sizes and it was very easy to get enrolled. I was supposed to be staggering my classes to finish my degree sooner, but there seems to be many times where I just have one class. The financial aid is a bit challenging to deal with the way it is dispersed. The supportive staff are great!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It's a great theological school, but a lot of the students feel shallow, or under educated. the professors do a good job of teaching the classes and the campus is quaint but it's nothing spectacular. There's not much to do around campus after school, so most of us stay in.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good school with good people, but definitely has the resources of a small school. Not much diversity. Not tons of clubs or activities that are not faith-based, and not an extremely focused on sports program. Good for growing in your relationship with God, getting out into the surrounding city, and if you are not looking for a ton of clubs or extracurricular. Directly in the heart of Minneapolis, so a mixture of great opportunities and sometimes shady neighbors. What the school lacks though is likely easily found in the surrounding Minneapolis community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love NCU! I will be a senior this fall and am so thankful for the years I have attended. I have been challenged, uplifted, encouraged, and made better as a person. Spiritually, I can say that I have made huge leaps forward and am stronger in my faith as a result. I have learned so much about what it means to surrender to the Lord and allow Him to refine my heart. The time spent here is completely priceless!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have spent one year at North Central University after attending a community college for two years. With the price tag at nearly $30,000 per year, one would assume that the campus would be beautiful with state of the art facilities and resources. This is sadly not the case. NCU has aging buildings that that leak with rain or snow. Given that we live in a state with never ending winters, one can see how this might be a problem. Also, the furniture that is in dorms and public areas is decades old and dirty/decaying. The food is the worst part. I didn't realize that salad could be God-awful, but North Central somehow found a way to even mess that up. Students often say that the Christian community makes NCU stand out, but realistically, a prospective student could create that community at a school that won't cause their parents to mortgage their house. NCU prides itself on its music program but there are schools that offer better facilities to pursue music and overall will offer students opportunities. While I'm grateful for the opportunity to receive a higher education, I'm deeply disappointed in the overall experience at this institution.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The emphasis of education here is strongly fabricated into the students, I have personally learned a lot. Most of the students here are very genuine as well as the staff and the sizes of the classrooms are not very big which means there tends to be a lot of person interaction with the professors.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love this university! The community is so wonderful and supportive. There is always someone to go to if you need to talk. The class sizes are comfortable. Professors make it clear that they are open to help with academic related issues and also issues out of the classroom. There is always something to do or something to get involved in. I am truly blessed to be where I am.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

North Central University as a private Christian college is immersed in culture and the arts, with a passion throughout the campus for God. Professors at NCU have a sincere heart for every student and a want to see each individual succeed. Yet one blemish is the food served within the Deli and Cafeteria, which is often tasteless and much like the common high school cafeteria food. But the Cafeteria isn't completely flawed, as the always-open-endless ice cream bar will really make the Freshman 15 a real thing. All in all, North Central is a terrific university to attend, with great passion, great faculty, not so great food, and a delectable endless ice cream bar.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I had the chance to go back to High School and give myself an advice I would tell my self, study extra hard, take all my class seriously. Get good grades and do PESO, take all the generals you need before going into college.

What's unique about your campus?

Everyone at this University is very Friendly. The community is great. One of the best things about this School is Chapel. The Chapels are great and encouaging.

What kind of person should attend this school?

This school is a Christian University. I think if you feel like this school is for you, then come to this school a person can be anyone to attend this school. But it is also a Christian University, meaning you have to go to Chapel.

Describe the students at your school.

I have yet to meet my classmates in person, but I am in a "upcoming student" Facebook page for the fall. The people in there seem wonderful & have such a great head on their shoulders.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would first and formost tell myself to take my studies as a high school student seriously. Your work quality definitely affects the scholarships you're going to be given as well as the opportunities in college. If you don't have a great work ethic, you are going to spend a lot of time waiting inbetween just to try and get back to college. I'd definitely tell myself to take advantage of the study opportunities given. I'd say that I'd need to hit the books harder even if at all. All the social time you spend engaging in during your senior year truly ammounts to nothing! You don't take that with you after high school. You are all going to go your seperate ways & you're not going to even see eachother again, really. So, don't invest your time in being a social butterfly. It's your last year, give it your all.
