What advice would you offer to students during their college search and application processes?
My advice is to visit all the colleges that you are interested in. You will know when you visit campus if it is the right academic and personal fit. You want to to make sure that you can call that school home for the next four years. You also want to choose a college that will challenge you in all aspects to be your best you.

Other than those regarding financial aid, what are the most common questions you receive from prospective students and their families, and how do you respond?
"What is a Billiken?" The Billiken is a good luck charm but today it represents things as they ought to be. The Billiken reflects how our students lead, learn and serve. The Billiken is ranked as one of the most unique college mascots. You can't be a Billiken anywhere else and once you are a Billiken, you are a Billiken for life!
