Real-World Experience

By the time I graduated I knew what I wanted to do with my career because I had already worked in my declared profession. No one can teach you what having a full time job is like, you have to be in it to understand. Being able to do that at "no risk" before you graduate and sign a contract is invaluable."

Cura Personalis

The Jesuit hallmark of cura personalis, or care for the whole person, describes the respect we have for each person’s intellectual, physical, and spiritual health and autonomy.  From public-service internships to volunteer outreach programs, all of our students actively participate in bettering the community.

Work Towards a More Just World
