Our Student Experience

student - student life

Being a Panther means being part of an environment that mirrors our increasingly diverse world and where students are expected to be attentive to their experiences, reflect on what those experiences mean, and develop abilities to turn good judgement into purposeful action for the rest of their lives.


The NCAA Division III Panthers focus on being competitive -- in the classroom and on the field.  Thirteen sports are available for the interested student athlete.
