Schedule your visit today

We encourage you to break free of conventions and find adventure. Today would be a great day to Take a Road Trip. You might be surprised what you find — a classic college town surrounded by two rivers, the Appalachian Mountains, and opportunities waiting around every brick-covered street corner. Where prospectors of knowledge, nonconformists, are blazing a new trail. A course that confronts challenges. With the sole purpose of defeating them.

They never fall in line. But they are joining the long line of those who sought adventure, explored the unknown, and prepared for anything. BREATHE. LET GO. Hear the voice inside you. It's calling. An undeniable desire to seek answers and the tenacity to put them to good use.

Students chatting
