Above all, liberty is what a university education gives a student intellectually, especially when that education is grounded in the liberal arts and sciences tradition – the liberty of the mind to explore various fields of knowledge and to reach new conclusions based on broad knowledge across the disciplines as well as specific knowledge of one field.
Principal Dr. Holly Pike’s
