Planning your next adventure

A liberal arts education comes into play in every workplace and in every field. That’s part of the reason why La Salle University equips its students with critical-thinking and civil discourse skills across all majors and disciplines. Here are six reasons why you should consider attending a smaller, liberal arts school.

  1. A close-knit community
    When you’re navigating the transition from high school to college, feeling like just another face in the crowd is the last thing you need. On a smaller campus, you’ll be part of a tight-knit community where everyone—from the faculty and staff to your fellow students—knows you by name.

  2. Smaller classes 
    You’ll be in classes with dozens of students, rather than hundreds. At La Salle, the average ratio of students to faculty members is 12:1. This means you’ll be able to have more in-depth discussions in class, get to know your professors well, and receive the personalized attention you need to succeed.  

  3. All the teaching is done by faculty 
    Studying at a large university doesn’t guarantee that every class you take will be taught by a professor. In fact, it’s just as likely you’ll be taught by teaching assistants and graduate students. If you attend La Salle, you will be taught exclusively by faculty members, who will have more time to evaluate your work and give you detailed feedback. 

  4. Flexible programs 
    Many smaller universities offer flexible curriculums that allow students to customize what they study and how. At La Salle, you can choose from nearly two dozen programs—in business, arts, and sciences—that gives you the opportunity to earn a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in just five years. 

  5. Help is always at hand 
    Attending a smaller university means you’ll benefit from more personalized advising, as well as more individualized attention from professors who will find it easier to spot if you need additional help. We offer academic and student success coaching, peer subject tutoring, and writing tutoring, as well as counseling services. 

  6. A career head start 
    With more access to faculty members, you’ll be able to secure research opportunities with professors working in a field that interests you or be matched to internships that best suit your goals. You’ll gain valuable experience, and when the time comes to apply for graduate school or a job, it will be easier to get letters of recommendation from teachers who know you well.
