Defi the ordinary.

FIND OUT

To answer that question, let’s consider another.

Why do you want a college degree?

Are you hoping to develop specific skills that would help you land a good-paying job? Or are you looking to broaden your overall knowledge and intellectual ability? Ordinarily, today’s college applicants choose one answer or the other.

To help you decide, career experts suggest you must sacrifice chasing the second objective to achieve the first.

What if the better choice had less to do with what you learn in college and more with how you learn it? What if, by getting a liberal arts education, you could develop the very skills that today’s employers value most?

The Defiance College learning approach—rooted in the liberal arts—emphasizes leadership, communication skills, critical thinking, moral reasoning, global awareness, and respect for diversity. The last time we checked, those are the specific competencies top employers seek when hiring.

Therefore, to defi the ordinary means not having to pick one educational goal over another. It means enjoying life-changing experiences in academic and personal growth.

We’d love the opportunity to get to know you while showing you in person how we will defi the ordinary together.

To Know. To Lead. To Serve. To Understand.
