Student Experience

We're a lively campus community brimming with opportunities to enrich your studies, connect with peers and grow intellectually and personally.

A Caring, Collaborative Culture

Our college has unparalleled academic programs — but what happens beyond our classroom walls is pretty exceptional, too.

Students study and socialize alongside a welcoming, tightly connected cohort of peers who, like them, are inquisitive, empathetic and ethically driven. They engage with faculty and staff who are rooting for their success. And they discover countless exciting extracurricular options.

Ignite new passions while studying abroad in spots like South Africa or the Galapagos. Build your skill set with research projects conducted in world-class labs. Kindle lifelong friendships with close-knit classmates. It all happens here, and we want you to be part of it.
