COVID-19 Update for Prospective Students and Families:
We invite students who want to learn more about all we have to offer to take a virtual tour. We have extended our enrollment deadline to June 1, and we are already test optional. Current students may have left campus, but they’re still learning remotely from our accomplished professors and getting advising, support for career services and our Writing Center, recent alumni and many other services.
