The Challenge; The Choice
Our open curriculum will give you the freedom to explore your passions by selecting courses that match your interests. Along the way, you’ll be guided by faculty mentors and our unique ALEX program, a coordinated advising network tailored for each student’s academic success, career preparation, experiential learning, and personal growth.
Say What You Mean
What good is having a great idea if you can’t communicate it effectively? A central goal of our liberal arts education is helping you express yourself in a clear, organized, and persuasive way.

Learning takes place when you expand your perspectives by encountering new ideas, gaining new experiences and opportunities, and interacting with people from different backgrounds.
