Got big dreams? Want to be a woman who uses her smarts, determination and education to change the world? We get it. Rose knows how to prepare you to do it.

STEM fields have historically been dominated by men. So what? The thing about history is that it’s in the past. You live in the now, preparing for the future that you will create. No one can stop you. In fact, you dare them to try to stand between you and your dreams.

Sound familiar? We thought so.

Look, we’re not here to tell you that you can do it. You already know that. You don’t need us or anyone else to give you permission to chase down your goals and change the world. (That’s so 1874.) But we’ll give you the tools to do it. The best tools. And the opportunities to begin using them--and to make a difference--your freshman year.

Here, you’ll learn from the best. And your mentors will include women who’ve knocked down barriers and broken through ceilings—glass and otherwise—to excel in their chosen fields. All of our professors are passionate about helping students succeed. They’ll challenge and encourage you to learn, explore and overcome.

It won’t be easy. Nothing worth doing ever is.

We work hard here. Really hard. And we’re better engineers, scientists and mathematicians because of it. We understand how to use what we know, because we apply that knowledge to research and hands-on projects solving real-world problems.

You will, too.

And when you leave Rose-Hulman, you’ll be able to say, “Bring it on, world. I dare you.”
