The small university of big opportunities. 

Our 1,800 undergraduate students study in small classes that encourage discussion and debate. They form meaningful connections with peers and faculty, and are connected by their desire to use their education to help others. Our campus is a community—our size allows us to give students the attention they deserve, the support they need, and the opportunities that will help them grow academically and personally.
