Scholarships and Awards Take You Far

The College of Arts and Sciences believes that engaging with the world is paramount to a well-rounded liberal arts education. With this in mind, we encourage all of our students to take advantage of the research, internship, study abroad, and service learning opportunities available from the first day of freshman year, through commencement, and beyond.  

Where will you go? What will you do? And how will it change your life?
