What happens at a place named by The Chronicle of Higher Education  as a “national model?” 

  • Students are assigned a career advisor when they begin at the College, and join one or more Career Pathways as they complete Career Milestones.
  • Each Career Pathway is guided and supported by a Career Pathway Leader from the CAC and a Leadership Team. The Leadership Team is composed of a limited number of students, alumni, faculty, staff, trustees, and friends of the College - it’s part activist, part advisory board. These are people eager to help students succeed.
  • 11 professional career center staff—more than twice the national median
  • Students can pursue up to three internships, and more than 50 percent graduate with internship credit
  • 97 percent of our students had jobs or enrolled in graduate school within six months after graduation
