Meet North Park

“North Park is unlike any university because it recognizes the importance of compassion, respect, and building strong relationships. These are all things I strive to maintain in my life, and it is incredible to have an environment that fosters these values.”

Erika Dwight C’18
Nursing Major

Meet North Park

“The strong liberal arts focus at North Park meant I took a much broader set of courses than most of my colleagues. Such broad-based knowledge helps personal development in a myriad of ways, but also provides practical benefits such as communication skills which, let’s face it, scientists could use more of.”

Jon Almer C’91, PhD
Beamline Scientist, Argonne National Laboratory

Meet North Park

“As a student who is active in local ministry, the most valuable thing for me are the relationships that are built with the professors at NPTS. They are dependable and reliable sources that walk with the student body on and off campus.”
