We do college the way you do college—not the same.

The image of college as a land of fresh-faced teenagers and Frisbee on an ivy-lined quad is a popular one—but it’s not the only one. For some—maybe for you—college is a step forward in your career, a way to take the life you’ve already lived and put it to new use, the pursuit of a long-held dream, or even just an added challenge to a promising high school curriculum.

We do have teenagers and Frisbees, but we also have something else: We have students like you, who make the most out of their education with people like us.
