Some students prefer to get lost in the crowd at large universities. Being one person in a sea of faces, they may step out into the world not knowing who they are or what life is all about.
But you're different. You want a quality education at a smaller school where your professors know you by name, where you can actually perform research in your first year, and where your faith and dedication to serving others provides you and your friends with a greater purpose in life. If you're this kind of student, we want to meet you!
