In its 45 years, Student Village residence hall was home to thousands of North Central College students. With three towers, three floors in each tower, and three rooms on each of the floors, “Stud Ville” allowed its residents to connect and interact daily in many ways … as long as residents were willing to cross the outdoor balcony!
The hall was demolished in July 2015 to create space for North Central College’s Science Center, opening in summer 2017. These photos by Steve Woltmann document the final days of Student Village.
