The Student Experience
Our students’ academic success is our top priority. We help students discover their individual talents and passions, find the right majors and programs to match their goals, and graduate on time with minimum debt and maximum potential.
Our advisors encourage students to create unique academic portfolios that help them stand out among their peers. Often, this means combining majors, minors, and certificates—a common practice in our College, where we support students’ diverse interests and goals.
Students in the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences have many opportunities to shine beyond the classroom: Honors programs, faculty-mentored undergraduate research, study abroad, community engagement, and internships, to name a few. We expect excellence—and our students respond in exciting and innovative ways.
