Our student-to-faculty ratio is 14:1.

We believe that starting classes without declaring a major is a wise choice, because it opens many possibilities for you to explore as a student. Students who enter college without a declared major tend to graduate and are employed at slightly higher rates than their counterparts who enter with a predetermined major. The Career and Internship Services Office can administer a career profiler test designed to provide ideas of career clusters that would be a fit for you. Once you have those results, you can select classes within our General Education categories to further explore those areas. We promise you will find a major before you graduate.
