Our peaceful, tree-lined campus is the ideal setting for the personal attention and support you receive with our 11:1 student-faculty ratio. Our proximity to San Francisco and the Bay Area means we also offer the academic resources, global opportunities and cultural diversity of a larger, higher-profile university. Result: a small school with a world view - and the best preparation for a successful career and life after college in the global community.
