Career & Grad School Prep
Studying the liberal arts and sciences
will prepare you like nothing else. Undergraduate studies at private colleges prepare students for the most challenging graduate programs in law, medicine, business and other fields. Work experiences, such as internships, greatly strengthen a young candidate's credentials and sometimes are a gateway to employment. More private college alumni report having had internships than graduates of any other type of institution. Our colleges' graduates are often the best among the best.
Choose a college that will help you for a lifetime. Early on, you'll be focused on that first job or perhaps graduate school.
However, also consider the lasting benefits of your college education. Graduating from a Virginia private college will impact your entire career, and can lead to future advancement and a greater degree of professional satisfaction.
Private college graduates have a much stronger affinity for their alma maters than graduates of most public institutions. They're often highly engaged in a close-knit community of alumni, and share camaraderie with fellow private college grads. The tradition of close bonds, a strong alumni network and ongoing academic mentors
is an important and ongoing asset of their education.
