Beyond the Classroom

Our signature integrative learning opportunities (PEAKs) will give you an edge in future academic and occupational endeavors.

All ̳ graduates will show at least two Pivotal Experience in Applied Knowledge (PEAK) involvement in their portfolio. Your PEAK might be a special course, an internship, a global learning experience, or a service project.

Integrating this involvement into a student's four-year ̳ experience is evidence of our long-running commitment to using a liberal arts foundation to prepare leaders for a world of change.

One example of a PEAK: 10 ̳ students embarked on a student-led spring Breakaway trip across the western U.S., where they were immersed in issues of sustainability. The students learned about what is possible for campus sustainability at ̳ and shared goals for policies relating to environmental issues.
One PEAK for Nick McGinley '23 is his role as director of marketing for SALT.
Carrie Voss '22 completed a PEAK as this year's homecoming chair.
PEAKs can include leadership as an R.A. like Gunnar Aas '22, Hoyum Hall.
Help the environment and get a PEAK at the same time. Lauren Nelson '22 is a sustainability student leader.
