Now what does that mean, you're saying to yourself. Wisconsin's Public Liberal Arts College? What does that mean to me?
Good question. Fortunately, there's a very good answer. It means we'll teach you how to think, not just do. A liberal arts education prepares you for a lifetime of learning and gives you the skills you need to adapt to a lifetime of career choices and changes.
We challenge you. We teach you to question, to contemplate, to solve problems for yourself. We offer you hands-on experience, and you'll hold onto more than you ever thought possible. We offer you top-rate professional training that helps you with real-world skills and real-life decision making. Simply put, a liberal arts education means you'll learn how to learn.
So, you're thinking now, will I have to take a bunch of boring classes? No. But you will be exposed to classes that open your mind to new ideas and new ways of thinking. And isn't that what college is all about?
UW-Superior has been selected as one of 27 nationwide members of the Council of Public Liberal Arts Colleges. Okay, we're patting ourselves on the back here, but we want you to appreciate the value we place on teaching you to think for yourself, as well as the high standards we set for our university. Our affiliation with the Council means that if you want a well-rounded education, we can offer you one of the finest examples of such in the country.
Okay, you're saying to yourself, what's the catch? Well it isn't tuition; with a Non-Resident Tuition Waiver (NTW), the cost of studying at UW-Superior compares very favorably with other US universities. And it certainly isn't a long list of boring classes. Maybe, just maybe, it is the fact that you have to challenge yourself to take on this type of education. To learn more than you thought you could. To prepare yourself for success before and after graduation. And that's something you really need to think about.
