What's the point of a Liberal Arts Degree? 

I was left scratching my head after reading the most recent edition of Oakleaves, where a former student is quoted saying "Del should encourage kids to do what they want to do in life, instead of encourag­ing them to look at the traditional options that the universi­ties place before them." I believe she is referring to Fine Arts and liberal arts programs, instead of what she refers to as "traditional programs", such as Business or Science.

Important Reminders

Driving Slowly Through Campus

As Spring weather is upon us, more of our students will want to take advantage of the outdoors.  Please SLOW DOWN as you drive on our campus and along Farnham and Woodlawn on your way to and from school. The extra speed is not worth an injury to any child.
