We're ranked in the top 4% of national liberal arts colleges producing successful Ph.D. candidates. About 65% of our alumni go on to graduate school within five years. This is not a coincidence.

Our students do the kind of work—intensive, hands-on, grounded in research—that leads organically to graduate and professional school. And they've worked with professors who a) are connected to advanced programs throughout the country, and b) know you exceedingly well, as a student and as a human being, which means they can help you find a program where you can do your best work, and that they can write an unusually thoughtful and thorough recommendation.
