Why Stritch?

"As an undergraduate student at a large public university, I did not have the experience of the small classes that are common at Cardinal Stritch University. As one of (too) many in the classroom or even the laboratory, I had limited access to my professors, the real experts. I learned as a teaching assistant in graduate school at another large public university that I preferred working with students in smaller numbers rather than the large class sections. Cardinal Stritch University provides me the opportunity to do so. This is especially impactful in the laboratory, where students can learn directly from the expert, myself. The small number of students allows me the opportunity of individual interaction to maximize the learning experience of each student. And seeing many of the students again in other courses allows me to observe and participate in their progress as science majors and individuals."
