Their motto is: “Bringing Futures Into Focus”. The first-year experience includes learning both inside and outside of the classroom, along with a service learning component and some important, basic skills like time management and communication.
The first site we visited on campus was the new out-door track and field facilities. They are brand new, fully equipped and very impressive. The campus, itself is 160 beautiful acres.
There are about 1,300 full-time students with a 13 to 1 student to faculty ratio. 42% live on campus in the four residence halls. Average class size is 17. There are over 40 academic programs and 19 NCAA Division III varsity sports, as well as numerous men’s and women’s intramural teams.
There is a heavy focus on developing the individual and creating life-long learners. Many majors require hands-on experience. Some, like Nursing, will put the student into a clinical situation in the first year. Although they may be better known for their Nursing and Education Degrees (including Special Education Certification), there are many other majors to choose from including: History, Human Services, Management, Radiation Therapy, Natural Sciences, Accounting and Sociology.
