NCU Bright Future Scholarship Winner: Elizabeth Carroll

Former Dropout and NCU Doctoral Candidate Aims to Keep More Students in School

Not all higher education journeys begin the same — with the excitement and anticipation of the path ahead. In fact, some paths start at the end of a rocky and bumpy road. Elizabeth Carroll’s journey is an example of the latter.

Carroll grew up in rural Kentucky and became a dropout immediately after graduating from middle school. “I hated everything about school,” she says. “I felt alienated, isolated and inadequate.”

June Bright Future Scholarship Winner: John Lohrfink

Advancing His Journey of Public Service

John Lohrfink’s history of public service began when he was a teen. The NCU School of Business and Technology Management student served hundreds of hours as a volunteer Firefighter and reveled in helping his community.

“I was a ‘light’ for someone else, and the feeling of doing something good for others overwhelmed my senses,” he says.  

June NCU Bright Future Recipient: Wanda Malave

Bridging the Gap Between Communities and Law Enforcement

Wanda Malave has a peaceful vision. For the past 27 years, she’s dreamed of facilitating positive change between local law enforcement and the communities they serve—and, the full tuition NCU Bright Future Scholarship will support her journey to achieve it.

“It feels as if I’ve received a dose of strength and vigor to keep moving forward,” she says of being one of the recipients of the June scholarship.

Here’s Another Opportunity to Grow with NCU: The NCU August Back to School Scholarship

It’s August, marking the last hurrah for the dog days of summer. This month is usually the start of the planning process for the new school year. Even though our students can start their degree program whenever it fits their schedule, Northcentral University is getting back into the school spirit with the NCU August Back to School Scholarship.

Going Further Together: Improving Learning Outcomes Around the World

Marcia Sobers-Charles isn’t afraid of big challenges. In fact, she’s chosen to take on one of the biggest—improving educational outcomes globally.

Sobers-Charles knows that such a lofty goal can’t be accomplished alone, so she takes inspiration from an African Proverb, “If you want to go fast, go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.”

Congratulations to Our June NCU Bright Future Scholarship Recipients!

Northcentral University is pleased to announce the six new students who were chosen as recipients of full tuition scholarships for the master’s or doctoral degree programs of their choice! 

The NCU Bright Future Scholarship awardees were selected on the strength of their essay submissions on the topic, “What new journeys would you pursue with a degree from NCU?”

10 Tips to Stick with Your Workout Routine

Why do so many of us vow that we’re going to work out, yet can’t stick with it? 

According to Dr. Augusto Rodriguez, PhD in Kinesiology and professor at Northcentral University’s School of Education, the answers vary and can include everything from a lack of time to not enjoying the exercise to simply losing interest. But at the end of the day, these are just excuses.
