What is your school best known for?North Park University is best known for, as it’s motto describes, being “distinctively Christian, intentionally urban, and purposefully multicultural”. It is a small, caring community of engaged students and teachers who care about each other and strive to positively impact the world.What do you wish you had known before you came to this school?I wish I had known more about living in the city, or more specifically Chicago. I wish I had known more about the surrounding area of the campus and the life outside the classroom that accompanies going to North Park.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?Since NPU is a private college, tuition costs more than a public university.What’s unique about your school compared to other schools you considered?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!

Describe your school in one sentence.From my experience at North Park University so far, this school offers many opportunities and resources and has a very well-educated group of professors, but NPU lacks intentional community and genuine fellowship.What kind of person shouldn’t attend this school?I don’t believe I have the power or ability to say, “This person cannot attend this school because…”  The answer to this question isn’t as black and white as it seems.  I believe that the decision to attend NPU depends on the persons’ values and the individual themself.  The decision doesn’t just come with information about the school beforehand but it also comes with the experience and interaction they will have.  That is one of the reasons why many students transfer; they like what they see beforehand but when they’re there, it’s a different experience.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?The paper cut; now we are charged for printing after 200 pages per semester. Nursing students pay a lot as it is and have a lot of things to print. And I wish we had cta/upasses like other schools in the city have, for public transportationIf you could change something about your school, what would you change?Having upasses for public transportation

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?For the most part I have not had negative feedback about the school. My experience thus far has been very positive and rewarding. I enrolled as an adult student and they have helped me a great deal in transitioning into a college student.,Describe your school in one sentence.The school is very diverse, friendly environment that looks to help an individual excel in whatever area he/she is interested in or seeking a preofessional career.
