In the College of Natural Sciences, we believe that learning shouldn't exist in isolation. We strive to place every freshman and many transfer students in one of our honors or community programs providing students with the support and company of other students, mentors, faculty and staff.
Our efforts speak for themselves. Over the last ten years, we have doubled the number of natural sciences graduates due, in part, to student success through small academic communities.
- The college is home to the largest program of its kind placing freshmen in small cohorts doing real research with faculty mentors. (See: Freshman Research Initiative)
- Participating in academic community programs results in higher GPAs, faster graduation rates, and success in future careers.
We also host an abundant student life program allowing students to join and lead organizations suited to their specific career and societal interests. College of Natural Sciences students enjoy the resources and networking of a large science college with the freedom to explore their own interests - or develop new ones. Discover your community.
