Risk becoming your best.

Risk being your best every day at Perk. In preparing individuals for success in college and life, we nurture common sense, a sense of justice, a sense of honor, a sense of responsibility and a sense of humor.

Alumni often tell stories of the "dreaded term paper." Do you remember what we had to write, it was so long, why do we have to do this, and so on. The History Department decided it was time to spice up the standard ninth grade term paper assignments. The students did not have a defined assignment. They had to generate a question, research it, and plan the answer. And of course, then write a paper answering the key question, but it was a question they had set themselves. At each step, faculty members helped students review and revise their work.

Upon graduation she worked at KASS Pharmacy Management. This position helped her marry her passion for management and science.
The water crisis in Flint, Michigan seems surreal. How in America can people be without water to drink, cook, and bathe? This is the question that troubled senior Kent Shi. During spring break, Kent heard about the crisis and was deeply moved. He said we take water for granted. We can buy a bottle of water, fill our water bottle up at a fountain, and take long showers without a care or worry. But the people of Flint can't and won't be able to for the foreseeable future. There is just no easy fix; it is frustrating and really hits you in the heart
