Describe your school to someone who's never heard of it.

Bryant is a small, tight-knit college in Rhode Island. We have a college of business and a college of liberal arts, and students that major in one are required to minor in the other (for example, a Finance major has to minor in a liberal art and a Psychology major has to minor in business). The campus is gorgeous - built on 400 acres in rural RI - and although it is a little remote, it's only a 20-minute drive from Providence, 45 minutes from Boston, and about 4 hours from NYC. It is a very residential community; 80% of students live on campus, and the close community feeling is a big part of what makes Bryant such a special place. We have a reputation for strong academics and recently completed the transition to Division I athletics. The majority of students are from New England and the northeast, but we have a growing international population, and as the school becomes better known, students are also being attracted from states as far away as Texas (where I'm from) and California. There are over 80 clubs and organizations on campus, and most students are involved in at least one. Students are very active as well, those who don't play a varsity/club/intramural sport are active gym-goers (there are also a couple of dance teams and a cheer-leading squad on campus). Winters are long and cold, but fall and spring are breath-taking and (almost) make all those cold months worth it. My favorite things about the school are the International Business program, the beautiful campus, the incredibly dedicated and accessible faculty and staff, and the strong community feel.
