Accepted Students

Congratulations! You’re on your way to becoming an integral part of our vibrant, active community of thinkers and doers, athletes and leaders, researchers and scholars.

If you choose to attend STAC, you may become student government president or editor of our college newspaper. Maybe you’ll study at Oxford with our Honors Program, build houses in Nicaragua or lend a helping hand on South Dakota’s Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. Or maybe you’ll meet your new best friend, learn to sing or host your own campus radio show. The possibilities — and opportunities to discover yourself and the world around you — are endless.  No matter what you do, you’ll be part of a special community that will encourage you and help you become the Best. You. Ever.
