November is the month designated as a time of reflection on what one is grateful for, and it typically culminates in the celebration of Thanksgiving. As I reflect on my time at NUHS, there are so many reasons to be thankful, the first of which is that the campus is located in Lombard, IL which is basically, my own “backyard”. Lombard is one of the many bustling suburbs of the Chicagoland area that has good shopping, restaurants, parks, gyms…you name it.
In terms of the campus itself, it is a beautiful campus to take a stroll on and enjoy nature and Lake Janse that is right at the center.
There are over 25 Student Clubs on the Lombard campus and even with all the safety measures that have become necessary since the start of COVID-19, Student Clubs are still providing occasions for additional learning, community service events, and ways to be social while exercising social distancing.
What I am particularly thankful for is the opportunity to apply for the various Institutional Scholarships that are offered every trimester. This Tri, I was awarded the DC Blogger Scholarship which affords me the opportunity to share a bit of what student life is like on the NUHS, Lombard campus and reasons to be thankful for why I attend.
Please take a moment to share what you are thankful for at this time
