Power of AND

The Power of AND means Blugolds aren't defined solely by one discipline or profession. We challenge students, faculty and staff to explore their multiple passions. Because of this broad educational approach, Blugolds are more than the sum of their parts. We're competitive, successful people with the skills employers want: creativity and critical thinking, flexibility and focus, courage and confidence. You'll gain a well-roundedness that comes from encouragement and opportunity to discover your AND!
