“It is difficult to put a price tag on a liberal arts education because it provides you with so much more than the prospect of a decent salary. The small class size provided a space for me to engage with my professors and classmates at a more intimate level and challenge the way I understand the world. My education at EOU gave me the essential skills and knowledge that I can take with me into graduate school at the University of South Florida (USF).”
