Academic excellence within a specific field, while necessary for continuing on to graduate school, is not sufficient in itself. It is also necessary to have a well-rounded undergraduate experience, the self-confidence, and the motivation to persevere through the intensity of graduate work. We believe that at Valparaiso University we can help the student interested in going to graduate school to develop all of these traits in himself or herself.
