Learn to solve problems, to speak and to write effectively and develop leadership skills.
Whether it's in our broad-based core curriculum (The Commons) or specialized study in your major, each course in the Block clearly builds on the last. At the end of each block, you'll have a four-day break. Optional summer blocks are also available.
Classes meet for three hours every weekday -- for 18 days -- so you can discuss a topic or lead a group presentation during one portion of your class, then apply you knowledge that same day in the lab, in the field, during an internship or a civic or faith-based project.
It's not memorizing tons material that will help you reach your goals in life; it's learning to problem-solve, speak and write effectively, work as a team and develop leadership skills.
