Apply their skills in mathematics, and use information technology; III. Achieve intellectual breadth while laying the foundation for life-long learning, by successfully completing one or more courses in the following areas: the cultures of the United States, Europe, and the Non-Western world; the arts; the natural sciences, including laboratory experiences; and the social-behavioral sciences; IV. Give evidence of their ability to focus on specific topics of inquiry for a sustained period, by successfully completing intensive, sometimes cross-disciplinary and innovative studies during Term III; V. Exhibit their ability to interact effectively with others, by engaging in such activities as group participation (including participation in collaborative coursework, athletics, clubs and organizations, or committees) and leadership (including leadership in honor societies, teams, classes, student media or student government); VI. Demonstrate their ability to contribute to the life of a community, by successfully completing experiences beyond the classroom such as community service, internships, and participation in residential living and in meaningful ceremonies and confirm their readiness for post-graduate study or professional careers, by completing a major of their choice from a range of the liberal arts and sciences and professionally oriented disciplines.
