Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

North Central isn't just all about learning a bunch of facts in your field. They work hard to give all students opportunity to develop as human beings wholistically--leadership, social skills, learning skills, and spirituality. While North Central does not try to indoctrinate their students to an unreasonable extent, they do push students to develop in all of these facets of life.

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

College costs a lot of money. Make sure that your money will be well spent. Don't go to a college that is going to provide an atmosphere that you don't want to be around for 4+ years, because many places can seem wonderful for the first year and then get tiresome shortly thereafter. Most schools are pretty open about the environment they try to provide for their students. Whether it be a very academically-focused or a very social life-focused school or any other, make sure you are going to where you want to be for 4+ years.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

North Central is for Christians who take their faith very seriously. If you don't, you will not like it here. There is no drinking allowed, it is difficult to have sex on campus, though not impossible. Don't come here if you're looking for a typical partying experience at college.

Don't focus soley on the majors that the school gives and the amount of money you'll be able to make after you graduate. Think about how you will feel on that campus and what you want kind of difference you want to make in the world around you.

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

My number one advice for parents and prospective college students is to take their time in finding the right school first off, and then figuring out how to pay for it. If this means taking a year or two off after high school graduation, then let it be. I say this from my own experience. I first started doing carpentry and working for two years after I graduated before I started college. I was able to experience a lot about life, as well as I had to learn to mature quicker than a lot of people. In a way this prepared me for college. Responsibility plays such a huge role in college when it comes to getting to class and making the grade. Even more so when there are aspirations to go to Grad school. Overall students and their parents must allow time to look at all applicable colleges and funding thoroughly before making a decision on where to go for college. It is a huge investment and the students must know what they want to do. Taking time after high school is a great way to figure this out.

What's unique about your campus?

I consider the community as the best thing about the school. It is a private Christian Pentecostal school that places a huge emphasis on the fact that we all share in the same values and beliefs, for the most part. It helps to take away a few of the stresses that can be had at a secular campus, such as drinking, other lifestyles not followed by our beliefs. This allows for us to concentrate more on our schooling in my mind anyway.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

The kind of person who is not open to any bit of religion and religious activity should not come here because it is at the heart of the school. This school was founded as a religious institution. Yet if someone is open to learning about the Pentecostal/evangelical part of Christianity then North Central is a great place for that.

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

The most important question to consider is what are you looking to get out of your college experience. A college's academics are important, but unless you are taking a large credit load the majority of your time will not be spent in the classroom. Think about your values, ways you might want to grow and be challenged, the kinds of people you want to build relationships with, what kind of activities/clubs you want to be involved in, etc. Not only is a good education important, but a good social life is also important. If you choose a school based solely on academics you might get there and not feel like you fit in because there are no activities or people who share your interests and values. Conversely, a school should not be chosen based solely on its extra-curricular programs with complete disregard for its academic standing. It is important to find a balance of good academic and social settings in a school.

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

All of the other little costs besides tuition such as books, living expenses, etc.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The quality of most of the classes here as well as how committed the professors are to helping students succeed and get grounded in their beliefs both academically and spiritually.

Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

i am a sign language interpreting major and the thing that was the most unique to me about north central compared to other colleges was the fact that north central has a program for deaf students. it is really awesome to be walking down the hall and being able to stop and say hello to one the deaf students. there are a lot of events that happen at the school and the deaf students are just as involved as the hearing students. it is really awesome to see the hearing students and the deaf students at north central interact.

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

My advice to the parents of a college student would to be to let your child do what they want to do with their life. I have seen friends go to the college that their partents went to, even though they didn't want to. I have seen friends make career choices that they wouldn't have made if they would have had a choice. Parents, it is your childs future. It is their life and their chance to make it want they want it to be. You will have no greater joy in life then watching your child succeed at their dreams knowing that you supported them, even if it wasn't what you would have had them do. As for the students, my advice to you would to be careful not to take your parents for granted. It is easy to believe that you are all your own just because you are in college, but really your not. I know that i couldn't do college if it wasn't for my mom and I am thankful for her everyday. It is easy to forget how much we still need our parents, even as college students.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

the location of the school and the people. the location of the school could be any more perfect for me. i am down in the city which is nice, being i dont have a car and can walk any where that may need to go. in a ddition, the people at north central are loyal, responsible, and friendly. they are always willing to lend a hand or help with a situation. i have developed some close friends and i believe that i will know them all through college and after.

Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

The campus at North Central is very small, but to me that just means that you get to know everyone there very well and make a lot of friends; I love that the buildings are all so close together, and that skywalks connect a pretty good amount of them.

Describe the students at your school.

In the classroom, my classmates and I are there to study, but outside of the classroom, my classmates are also some of my best friends, and we have a lot of fun together.

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

Advice I would give students about finding the right school is to visit the schools that they are intersested in, and then attend that which they feel most comfortable at. You spend a lot of time there, and students should feel they are where they're supposed to be. The advice I have for future college students concerning making the most out of their college experience would definitely be to make as many friends as possible. Friends are what make college bearable during the time you spend there. Friends are support, stress relief, and study partners, and I know my college experience wouldn't have been the same without them. Advice I have for parents about college searching would be to let their students decide. They should help and guide their students, but not try to make the decision for them. After all, it is the student's college experience, not the parent's. Advice for parents about their student's college experience would be to let the students live their life, and to not bog them down with numerous phone calls and e-mails asking them what they had for dinner or how much work they have to do.
