Experience Matters

Our classroom experience is supplemented with practical experience that will help you find the right path to your future career – conducting scientific research, interning with world-class employers, volunteering for social justice causes, or studying abroad in foreign lands are all ways to put your classroom knowledge to use before you graduate.

Values Based Leadership

Over four years, our students participate in a variety of dialogues, exploring ideas, truth and faith; challenging convictions and embracing differences for the common good. In the end, students simply gain more: a greater sense of self, a personal standard of values and ethics, and the skills and experience to lead a life of integrity no matter where that life takes them.
