Curiosity. College is a big commitment, so it’s important to ask questions to make sure that we have what you’re looking for.
What makes the College unique?
Experiential learning opportunities, like internships and study abroad programs, are popular and successful here. It’s so nice to have the advantage of both an intimate liberal arts education and the opportunity to connect with alumni and employers in Chicago and beyond!
Tip for the college search
Find a place that inspires you! You should feel both challenged and supported in college. Being comfortable will allow you to explore your passions and be empowered to succeed. But being too comfortable could prevent you from learning or growing to your full potential.

Be open to new things. It’s never too late to aim for a new academic path, career path, or hobby. You’ll never know if you’re good at it until you try it!
