But it's our quality of education, not size, that truly makes us great. Our Honors program is viewed by the National Collegiate and Southern Regional Honors Council as one of the exemplary programs in the nation.

But the opinions that matter most are those of our students, and 92% say we met or exceeded their expectations on overall quality of education.

We strive to ensure that equal access to higher education belongs to everyone, because the future does, too.
