It's a very welcoming university and everyone is super helpful in times of need. I was super nervous and overwhelmed about attending college for the first time, but the overall staff were very kind and useful in terms of keeping the campus open with safety practices and helping students find their way in remote learning.
North Park University is a great school to attend on the North side of Chicago. It's in a safe area of Chicago and is a decent sized school. My favorite thing about North Park are the size of the classes, this really allows you to get a one on one interaction with your professors.
I think North Park University is a great diverse school. The friendly faculty and staff work together with their students to improve teaching skills, as well as grades and understanding of the material being taught. They also encourage and help their students learn to think critically. The campus is beautiful as well as small and you're bound to make new friends where ever you go.
My overall opinion of North Park University is that it is a great learning environment. We have just recently begun our Catalyst program which allows undergrad students to utilize the city while learning. The city of Chicago has become our classroom. Not only is Chicago our work and play area but the professors are amazing, they teach their subjects with an extreme passion.

I have received a tremendous amount of pride. My experience has taught me to be more responsible for others. I realized that I can make the world a better place in helping people with there problems, by helping in this way it has made me feel better inside. Being able to interact with people everyday is the best feeling I could get therefore, a bigger self-esteem. Now I know I can do anything, and I have accomplished more than what I realized I could do. I value all the moments I spend in college because it has givin me the knowledge to succeed in my life. I will always cherish my years in college. Now I have the confidence to go out into the world and make it a better place. With the experience that I have already, has lead me moving forward in continuing my education.
Chicago was the best thing about my school. Being in the city limits allowed many learning opportunities to engage in the community and make a positive difference as well as explore and be engulfed in the culture of the city.
Someone shouldn't attend the university if they aren't interested in the liberal arts education.
I wish I would have known more about financial aid. I'm always panicking and worrying about how I'm going to get tuition paid, and it gets worse every semester. It's been a major struggle for me the past couple of semesters, but I just keep telling myself it will be worth it when I have that degree in a few years.
Our food is not that great yet it is pretty pricey. ARAMARK is our provider and I would consider it to be the worst part of our school! We need to get a new program in with more food choices and more flexible dining hours.
The majority of people here are very religious. Many are still down to earth, and focused on success.
A small campus located in a large city which give a small town feel, yet the big city experiences.
North Park University is a smaller campus, and allows for a closer relationship between students and faculty. You are not treated like just another number attending campus. The Academic Advisor is very helpful. North Park University's Axelson Center for Nonprofit Management touts itself as one of the best schools in its region, if not the nation. Given the list of faculty members, access to Professional Development Workshops, and Annual "bootcamp" for new nonprofit CEOs, I am certain that I've made the right choice!
My fellow classmates are usually kind people who love the university.
The most frusterating thing is that people aren't always in their office when you're looking for them.
My school is best known for being founded by swedish people.
The North Park University campus is beautiful. When you're on campus, it is so quiet and serene that you hardly realize you are in Chicago. There is a river that runs through the campus, surrounded by hundreds of beautiful trees and plants everywhere you look. It's also within walking distance of two CTA train stops that will take you anywhere you want to go in the city. This school allows you to experience the excitement and buzz of Chicago while having a calm and relaxing campus to return to a the end of a busy day.
