What is
Experiential Learning?

It’s putting your education into action through immersive experiences that integrate the classroom with the real world. It’s “co-op” (cooperative education), global opportunities, service learning, and research. It’s the most powerful learning model.

Areas of
Study

Our colleges are close-knit communities, each with their own approaches and programs offering an array of academic choices and interdisciplinary opportunities to prepare you for a life of fulfillment and accomplishment in a world that is constantly changing. For students undecided about their major, we offer the Program for Undeclared Students to help you explore your passions and define your areas of interest.
