Congratulations! In just a few short weeks, you’ll be getting meals with other freshmen in Collis, deciding which classes to take and learning all of our unique lingo.

(04/20/15 10:34pm)

When students imagine the lawns of Greek houses, they likely picture unkempt, weedy patches of grass dotted by the occasional runaway beer can.

(01/16/15 2:45am)

The Dickey Center for International Understanding and Rockefeller Center for Public Policy, founded in 1982 and 1983 respectively, are both young in the College’s storied timeline. Even down to their close launch dates, the two centers seem like they are born out of a similar instinct — an enthusiastic desire to bridge classroom learning with hands-on, policy-focused work.
