Small classes yield results

“Having a small class gives everyone a greater opportunity to get to know one another and to learn from one another. I have the chance not only to ask questions, but to share my opinion and to construct ideas through greater interaction with the professor and the class.”—Courtney Manies ‘16

How do we know that small classes are good for our students? Check the results:

  • 95 percent of students are employed or in graduate programs within six months of graduating.
  • 100 percent of students recommended for law school are accepted.
  • 90 percent of students recommended for med school are accepted.
  • Our science and math students are accepted to graduate schools
    at a rate twice as high as the national average.

Our professors teach three classes each term, with an average class size of 13 and many with 10 or fewer students. That gives our professors the chance to get to know you and take a personal interest in your  progress.

Student-to-faculty ratio 11:1

As one of our students put it, "I've taken classes at larger universities and I couldn't even find the professor's door. It's pretty nice to be able to walk down the hall from the classroom to my professor's office."
