What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
North Park has a variety of fantastic opportunities for well-rounded people. Since it is a smaller campus, the class sizes are smaller and the teachers really get to know and challenge you on an individual level. The campus community is very diverse and accepting to all; it is a great environment to live in and be a part of.
Katerina from Ingleside, IL
Amazing location since it's in the city but due to it's location and a small campus, it doesn't completely feel like you're living in the city. It has great diversity on campus.
Megan from Dwight, IL
The college provides a Christian atmosphere for prayers and worship, but also variety of opportunities to share your own beliefs and views. It has an interest for students, especially those with interesting backgrounds, whether it is projects, culture, views or sexuality, everyone is included in the community. As a college, it offers the best for the students to, not only study, but also be a part of a bigger educational and giving community.
