Students are encouraged to use the flexible track options to develop a field of specialization that is suited to their needs and their visions of the future for themselves and society. We encourage a diverse student body in terms of background, interests, and career paths. However, they should be self-starters who have a vision of where they are going. Students are encouraged to be involved in the campus and their community.
