Excerpt:

Most students who come to a major four-year public institution with a broad range of academic programs do more than just get that credential. They grow, they learn how to reason, they learn independence, and they experience an international phenomenon during their undergraduate years–which we’re really pressing at WKU. They understand a global context, and they really bring value to their future employers, their family, themselves, to our society in ways that go way beyond just the raw credential of a given skill-set.
