  • Engaging curricular and co-curricular programs: Thanks to the University's active campus life, students have regular opportunities to engage in a wide variety of interests and activities—both inside and outside of the classroom. Nearly all undergraduate students choose to live on campus, taking advantage of on-campus housing, dining, and recreation facilities.
