What Students Are Saying

3.78 Average Rating
great school located in one of the safest neighborhood. smaller class size add up to student's advantage. however, not allowing international graduate students to do internship is something that can be discussed or changed.
NAMGYEL from NAPERVILLE, IL
North Central College has everything a prospective college student could want. On its beautiful campus you will find a tight community, unbelievable opportunities for growth, and also a wonderful faculty and staff. Instead of looking for a huge school to attend, where you will no doubt be just a number, you should check out a school where you will actually matter.
