"I learned from passionate North Central professors whose hands-on experience helped me discover new interests, which was an amazing experience."

Sean Bradley - North Central dual-enrolled student, currently enrolled at Princeton University


"My career is more than a job; it is a part of my life, a part of my family. My students are a part of that family. And although they only stay for a short time, I hope to inspire each to be a better person and continue on his or her academic journey."

Jenny Maginnis, Ph.D. - Professor of Communication and North Central alumna


"North Central was the first step on the path that led me to where I am today. I made lifelong connections, got to enjoy all that is offered in Petoskey, and my first two years of college were completely debt-free, with almost no money out of pocket."

Haylie Hasse - North Central alumna, '17


"What I find most inspiring about my job is that you can actually see students' confidence grow. They don't know what kind of impact they can make until they start to understand their own potential. That's what we're here for."

Jim Cousino - Dean of Career and Technical Education


"The Associate of Arts program was best suited to help me transfer to another school later down the road. The credits I earned at North Central transferred seamlessly to the University of Michigan."

Stephen Conner Beer - North Central alum, '18
