From the very first moment students step onto campus, they feel a palpable sense of momentum.

A can-do spirit emanates from every class and student, and undergraduate students are integral to this momentum. Combine that with the resources and opportunities you would expect from one of the highest ranked schools in the nation, and it's not a question of if our students will make a difference — it's a question of when.
