"Because I pursued my undergraduate and graduate education in large state university systems, I appreciate the special ethos that characterizes a liberal arts college. In particular, I enjoy the smaller class sizes, the student-teacher relationships that can develop, and the unique opportunities for personal and intellectual growth that we provide our students." -John Dugas, Associate Professor of Political Science
