What Students Are Saying

3.50 Average Rating
A great tip for any prospective students is to have a really detailed entree essay. The counselors love to hear all the details in your story.
Shellye from las vegas, NV
-do not procrastinate
-get sleep
-when you are given an assignment, start it right away
-look for any available on-campus jobs
-buy used books
-try to party only on the weekends because no one wants to go to class super tired the next day or even worse, not show up
-show up to class (VERY IMPORTANT!)
-take very good notes
-if you are not there for a class, get the notes from one of your classmates and ask about any homework, due dates, changed due dates and tests/quizzes.
-talk to your professor as much as possible. If you don't tell them you don't understand something, how are they supposed to be able to help you?
-spend a lot of time at the library
-check your email constantly for class cancellations, important class information from your professors, and updates on what is going on around campus.

Here is a tip for students that are thinking about coming here, when you come to the school for your visit ask your tour guide about the location of the OLDEST tree in Chicago. (It is right on campus, in the middle of the green space). Also, if you do decide to attend this university, make sure that you know all of your professor's names and try and make sure they remember yours for good reasons.

Work hard. Your professors of North Park will always expect more of you so you can discover and develop your true potential.
Have integrity. The main goal of North Park is to educate students in order for them to have lives of significance and service.
Katerina from Ingleside, IL
It is OK to not know everything in the beginning, current and alumni students are more than happy to help you if you do wonder about anything, whether it is classes, subjects, professors or campus questions. It is smart to get to know some current students to help you prepare yourself and reduce whatever that might be your worries if you have any. Professors and other faculty members are there to help and guide you through everything, thus it is important that you ask whenever there is anything you are wondering about. Once you start college, please make friends! Be social, I can ensure you that you will always find someone who share the exact interests as you. Join the community by looking up clubs and activities. There's nothing to fear, only everything to look forward to.
