Our undergraduate liberal arts college, nestled in the foothills of the Ozarks, was founded in 1872 and is one of the more historic colleges in Arkansas. We challenge our students to grow in a multi-faceted approach with a strong commitment to liberal arts education in order to mature into well-rounded, open-minded individuals. First time students are students that have not attended a college full time.
