Classroom With more than 30 majors and 50 student organizations alone, it's a great place to be undecided, or multi-interested, as we call it. Get to know us, and get involved with classmates, advisers and faulty who will care for you in the Jesuit tradition of cura personalis, which calls for treating people with respect for their unique qualities, gifts and challenges as individuals. With that kind of support, it's no wonder that roughly half our students graduate with more than one major.
