Where much is expected from those who are given much. Where you will be asked questions that don't have easy answers. Where men and women share their talents and compassion through service to others. Where God is a part of the conversation. Where the deepening of faith is a central part of the experience. Where you will learn how to think, not what to think. Where you will learn to appreciate life's rich gifts.
Where you will live and learn with more than 11,000 people from all over the world. Where you will meet students who look, think and act very much like you - and more who don't. Where your world view will be shared by many and challenged by many. Where cultures come together to learn from and about each other. Where "care for others" is something to be acted upon, not just talked about. Where common ground is established by understanding and embracing differences.
Where a rigorous core curriculum will make you a sharper thinker, writer and speaker. Where you will be prepared not only for your first job, but for the rest of your life. Where you'll have instant and constant access to world-class faculty. Where passions for great teaching and great research intersect in great professors. Where six colleges and dozens of majors offer infinite possibilities.
Where your classroom goes beyond your campus. Where you'll find countless internships within minutes of campus. Where you can afford to go out for a night on the town. Where big-city arts, major-league sports and world-class dining are everyday options. Where what you learn and what you do are connected.
Where you will learn to be a leader in your profession and a leader in your community. Where you will have an advantage when you apply for graduate or professional school. Where competence is nothing without compassion.
Where you will realize you can make the world a better place. Where you will find reasons for hope in a difficult world. Where your moral compass will become a trusted instrument. Where you'll become the person you always
wanted to be.
