The Focus is on You

Students form a study group

Our campus feels friendly and welcoming. While we've grown from our 1960 founding class of 800 to our 2017 fall enrollment of 10,003, we treat you like there’s only one of you. Most classes have fewer than 22 students - more chances for one-on-one with your professors. 

You Belong Here
