"Professors at USAO celebrate the limitless potential of the liberal arts mission. The intimacy of the small class sizes and the freedom to employ diverse teaching styles and strategies allow professors and students to enjoy a spectrum of intellectual experiences unrivaled even by large universities."
"I’m from High Wycombe in Buckinghamshire, England. I came originally for the soccer, but when I saw the place, the campus was great and all the people were really nice. The atmosphere is homey and everyone makes you feel welcome."
"On my visit to check out the basketball team I heard nothing but great comments about USAO's biology department success rates. Because I wanted to be a physical therapist, USAO became my #1 option for college. Now that I'm here, I recommend the biology department all the more if you want to be prepared for med school. It takes hard work and many hours outside the classroom studying, but if you have a passion for studying life science and are willing to work hard to earn your college degree, then USAO's biology department is where you need to be."
"The Deaf Education program has really elevated my thinking in regards to teaching. I feel like I will leave with a lot of tools for my 'mental toolbox.' I really enjoy my studies and I know I made the right choice to become a teacher."
Meghan Duggins deaf education major from Kansas City, MO
"There is no other university in this area of the U.S. that suits my needs and desires as a student and as an individual. The transfer process from a community college to USAO was easy, and I felt supported by the faculty & staff on campus during the transition.
I highly recommend USAO to any student. You can’t find this kind of high-quality education at such an affordable price anywhere else in the United States."

“It's a big adjustment moving here from Queens, New York, but I've met some great people and faculty members. What brought me here was a scholarship, but I've found a small campus and friendly environment, and that's cool.”
