Do you want a different college experience?

USAO has been doing things differently since 1908. Different is in our DNA. It’s our greatest power. It’s our tradition.

You don’t have to be liberal or an artist.

We’re a liberal arts school. What’s that mean? It means you can take economics and theatre arts classes and still go to med school with a major in biology. It means you are empowered to think, write and speak for yourself. That’s liberal arts our way.

Our faculty is better than your faculty.

Everyone’s faculty is smart. So is ours. But our faculty live by an open door policy, serving as mentors, counselors and friends outside the classroom. And they are dedicated to ensuring that all students reach thier own individual potential. Nah, nah, nah, nah, nah!

We love our culture – you will too.

There is a place and a voice for everyone at USAO. That's why we keep it small. And real. Simply put, our campus just feels like home - you'll feel it too.

Have we got a deal for you.

Graduate from USAO without a mountain of debt. Not only do we have one of the lowest tuition costs among all state schools, we can also brag that 80% of our students receive scholarship or financial aid. That means you get a private school education for a public school cost.
