30 Inspiring NLU Stories

‌Do you remember when you were in college? Do you remember trying to keep up with your school work? Juggling homework assignments with housework? And managing a job or career? All while supporting your children, elderly parents, or siblings?

At National Louis our students come from every walk of life.‌

They are young, middle-aged, and old.
They are urban, suburban, and rural.
They are brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, and grandparents.
They are business people, educators, and social service providers.

But all have one distinct similarity:
Our students aim to receive a top-notch education.

Every day our students manage busy, full lives while adding education to the mix. Please make a gift to National Louis in support of our inspiring students today.

Join us in empowering our scholars to focus on their studies without being overshadowed by financial barriers to their success.

Make a gift to National Louis University today.
