Learning Environment

The learning environment in the School of Science is characterized by small classes, personalized attention from full-time faculty, and opportunities to conduct guided research or serve internships in real-world studies. Our laboratory facilities are open around the clock so that students can review laboratory materials or gather for group study in an environment conducive to learning. Faculty members often return at night to lead optional review sessions, and most maintain an open-door policy to increase their availability to students. Each student is advised by a full-time faculty member, who helps plan course schedules and provides suggestions for co-curricular activities that will enhance the undergraduate experience.
