Universities with programs similar to Grand Valley's?

Hey folks, I’ve been looking into Grand Valley State's unique liberal arts and sciences programs and was wondering if there are other universities with a similar academic bent? I'm really interested in a school that combines practical learning experiences with a liberal arts education. Bonus points if it’s in the Midwest region!

Absolutely, there are several universities in the Midwest and beyond that offer a combination of liberal arts education with practical learning experiences. For instance, take a look at Oberlin College in Ohio. Oberlin has a strong liberal arts program and also places a high emphasis on experiential learning.

Another one to consider is The College of Wooster, also in Ohio, which is known for its independent study program where students work one-on-one with a faculty mentor to conceive, organize, and complete a significant research project on a topic of their choice.

In Indiana, Earlham College is known for its interdisciplinary approach and commitment to practical experiences, including internships and off-campus study.

In Illinois, check out Knox College, which integrates experiential learning with a solid liberal arts foundation, encouraging students to apply their classroom learning to real-world situations.

These are just a few examples, and I would recommend you further explore their specific programs to see which aligns best with your academic and career goals. Don't hesitate to reach out to their admissions offices for more detailed information!
