Today we offer men and women a distinctive education that features class-sizes designed to make education personal - almost 60% of our classes have fewer than 20 students; professors who are committed to mentor students, a curriculum that stretches intellect and instills leadership, and a community that is as energetic as it is welcoming.
Our three colleges feature more than 50 outstanding majors and concentrations. Outside of class, more than 75 campus organizations make campus life dynamic, interesting, and fun.
