Campus life

The best way to determine if a college is right for you is by visiting the campus. Because really, nothing compares to the real thing. The excitement and energy of this place. The beautiful campus. The people. The shared commitment to exploration and discovery. It just has to be experienced firsthand. While you're here, you'll tour our beautiful and ever-changing 100-acre campus, observe students and faculty engaged in classrooms and labs, sample the social scene in the Commons, and be greeted along the way by members of the campus community.
