Learn outside the classroom

Among the most important lessons you’ll learn at North Central are those that take place outside the classroom. Learn leadership skills as you join others in one of more than 100 student organizations. Make music with a jazz combo, express yourself on award-winning WONC radio, take a stand at the Model UN, or invite fellow students into a club of your own creation.

All students can participate in activities hosted by registered student organizations, funded through the required Student Activity Fee. This fee is directly managed by the Student Governing Association through its student-run Finance Committee, and supports hundreds of educational, cultural, and social engagement opportunities each year to enrich the student experience. Join the fun!
