The Student Experience

Your education extends beyond the classroom.

We are a place where students find calling, career and community. With more than 60 student organizations, 20 NCAA DII and club sports, work-study opportunities, and a city full of restaurants, shops and entertainment, you’ll find plenty to do outside the classroom.

Prioritizing health and safety

Your wellbeing matters.

Academic success requires a holistic approach to well-being, encompassing physical, emotional and spiritual health. We offer a comprehensive range of resources to support students in all three areas, as well as prioritizing safety with 24/7/365 campus police protection.
