Welcome to the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS). We want to help you become what you dream about—whether that’s a Spanish teacher or a psychologist, a creative writer or a corrections officer, a chemist or a computer scientist. We also make sure that you gain the skills, such as writing and critical thinking, that employers want and that will enable you to succeed professionally, no matter what field you pursue. We also want you to have a rich and fulfilling life. As a member of our community, you will learn about and celebrate diversity, participate in civic initiatives, and practice sustainability. Through these experiences, you will grow more confident with each semester.
Our faculty have dedicated their careers to you and look forward to serving as your mentor. You will find many of us share a similar background as you, whether you are first-generation, a veteran, a transfer, returning after time away, or entering as a first-time student. We have been along that same road and want to help you to succeed.
So, welcome! Stop in any time ~ we are here for you.
