The best way to discern if North Park Theological Seminary is right for you is to spend a day as a member of our community. We have a beautiful campus on the North side of Chicago that we look forward to welcoming you to.
We are open for visits during the summer but we only offer classes for a few weeks, so our campus tends to be fairly quiet and faculty/students are often not available for a meeting. If summer is your best option, we would be more than willing to give you a tour of our beautiful campus and set up a time for you to meet with an admissions representative.
During the academic year, Thursday is our community focused day. If you are able to visit on a Thursday, you will have the opportunity to attend worship with our seminary community, as well as participate in a community lunch discussion following chapel. You’re welcome to visit on any other weekday that fits your schedule, but you should note that there are no classes in session on Fridays, and other options may be limited.
A basic visit schedule may include:
Attending seminary chapel
- Campus tour
Meeting with an admissions representative
Attending a class
Meeting with a faculty member (as available)
- Having coffee/lunch with a current student (as available)
If you are coming from outside Chicago and planning an overnight visit, we can help by providing:
Lodging at no charge for one night in student housing, or, if you choose to stay in a local hotel, up to $40 for the night to help offset the cost
Assistance in arranging your transportation to campus, which may include rides to/from O'Hare Airport or an ‘L’ train station near campus
