Why Stritch?

"Everyday, I'm afforded the opportunity to work closely with remarkable students from varied backgrounds and experiences. Our small classes allow us to enter into dialogue with each other about all the real things: art, diversity, beauty, and the universals of the human experience. It's simple: at Stritch, we really know each other, and it makes all the difference. "
